Summary
Feminism still provides one of the most exciting areas of intellectual work. In spite of the view of some that we have entered a phase of post-feminism, it is still stimulating new ways of thinking and challenging mainstream thought. The area of feminist work on law and criminology has been a part of this intellectual movement. In this new collection of integrated essays, Carol Smart pushes forward the existing debate. Strongly critical of the ''women and law'' approach, the author presents a new, gendered analysis of the power of law and argues for a feminist, post-structuralist approach. The book offers useful comment on the recent US ordinances against pornography, as well as discussing current research on rape trials and abortion legislation
