Can feminism be regarded as a single coherent approach to the study of law and social theory? A critical evaluation


 

Essay from the year 2016 in the subject Law - Miscellaneous, grade: 70, Kingston University London, course: International law (LLB), language: English, abstract: What is found to be the common ground for feminist legal theorists, is the belief that the society and legal order is patriarchal. The movement began in the late 1930's when a large number of women studying law began to question and raise concern about the curriculum and the negligence regarding crucial issues of concern to women such as: rape, unequal pay, domestic violence, sexual harassment, gender discrimination. This movement led these new groups of thinkers to bring forth important issues concerning women and undertake litigation on their behalf, to protect and propagate their interests . Feminism seeks to understand and analyse the construction and maintenance of patriarchy and the contribution of law in doing so, in order to undermine it and ultimately eliminate it.
