Abstract

English Abstract: This collection of essays is the product of the workshop Feminist Judgments: Comparative Socio-Legal Perspectives on Judicial Decision Making and Gender Justice held at the International Institute for the Sociology of Law (Oñati, Spain) in May, 2017. The papers explain and explore the multiple global projects that attempt to rewrite judicial opinions by incorporating feminist legal reasoning or methods. Each essay grows out of the authors’ experiences working with projects based in a particular socio-political, geographical, historical and jurisprudential context: Canada, England, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, Scotland, and a multi-jurisdictional international law project. Collectively, the essays bring new insights, methods and challenges to the study of the feminist project of equal justice across the boundaries of culture, race, nation and gender.

Spanish Abstract: Esta colección de artículos es producto del seminario Feminist Judgments: Comparative Socio-Legal Perspectives on Judicial Decision Making and Gender Justice, que tuvo lugar en el Instituto Internacional de Sociología Jurídica (Oñati, España), en mayo de 2017. Los artículos explican y exploran los múltiples proyectos globales que intentan reescribir opiniones judiciales incorporando razonamientos o métodos jurídicos feministas. Cada artículo proviene de las experiencias de las autoras en su trabajo con proyectos basados en un contexto sociopolítico, geográfico, histórico y jurisprudencial concreto: Canadá, Inglaterra, Australia, Irlanda, Nueva Zelanda, Escocia y un proyecto jurídico internacional multijurisdiccional. En conjunto, los artículos aportan nuevos enfoques, métodos y desafíos al estudio del proyecto feminista de justicia igualitaria, más allá de los límites de culturas, razas, países y géneros.
