Abstract

This book examines the interaction between women and the law through a cultural holistic framework. Geared towards students, lawyers and the general public, individual chapters focus on women's interactions with the courts, tribunals, police and prisons as defendants, victims, plaintiffs and practitioners. Specific areas examined include gender and theories of crime, sentencing, battered women who kill, sole parent pension fraud, prisons, domestic violence, sexual assault, discrimination, harassment, intersectionality and women in legal practice. Each chapter contains group and individual exercises, and an index is provided. Selected chapters are separately indexed.

Keywords: women, law, gender, domestic violence
