Summary
"This book aims to explore the relationship between constitutional law and feminism. The contributors offer a spectrum of approaches and the ananlysis is set across a wide range of topics, including both familiar ones liek reproductive rights and marital status, to emerging issues such as new societal approach to household labor and participation of women in constitutional discussions online. The book is divided into five parts: I) Feminism as a challenge to constitutional theory; II) Feminism and judging; III) Feminism, democracy and political participation; IV) The constitutionalism of reproductive rights; and V) Women's right, multiculturalism, and diversity. As a collection, the book seeks to examine, challenge, and indeed redefine the very idea of consitiutionalism from a feminist perspective"--Provided by publisher
