This essay, included in the book SCREENING JUSTICE--THE CINEMA OF LAW: Significant Films of Law, Order and Social Justice (Rennard Strickland, Teree E. Foster & Tauyna Lovell Banks, eds., William S. Hein & Co. 2006), discusses the development of the law in Goldman's Lord of the Flies and raises the question of whether an island populated by a mix of boys and girls - or an island populated by only girls - would have developed a different law.
