Abstract

An examination of gender equality from a Christian, rather than a constructionist feminist, perspective reveals whether our positive law reflects Christian beliefs and values based on transcendent principles, or the notion of law as a social construct. This article considers the history and ideas presented by Christian scholars and their foundation in the revolutionary treatment of women by Jesus Christ.
