Women, Law, and Equality: A Discussion Guide is designed to stimulate and facilitate discussions around the complicated issues of feminism, equality, and social justice among broad spectrum of readers, with varied perspectives and knowledge. The book consists of six Chapters, which first frame the following five topics: Polygamy; Caring for Young Children; Feminism, Law, Cinema; Women and Power; and Women and Migration. Each Chapter provides excerpted and compiled texts and discussion questions intended to stimulate discussion.
The topics discussed in the guide all throw into relief the legal, social, ethical, and political implications of women’s equality issues. The range of topics covered in the guide make it ideal for a survey or introductory-level gender studies, women in the law, or women-focused political science course. It could also be used for a series of book club-style discussions.
