The first book-length treatment of the application of feminist theories to international law.. Its central argument is that the absence of women in the development of international law has produced a narrow and inadequate jurisprudence that has legitimated the unequal position of women world-wide rather than confronted it.. Provides a feminist perspective on the structure, processes and substance of international law dealing with its sources, treaty law, the concept of statehood and the right of self-determination, the role of international institutions and the law of human rights.. They finally consider whether inclusion of women in the jurisdiction of international war crimes tribunals represents a significant shift in the boundaries of international law.. Aims to encourage a rethinking of the discipline of international law so that it can offer a more useful framework for international and national justice.

Review:

"A long-overdue synthesis of a vast amount of scholarship, remains necessary-for both practical and academic reasons." --American Journal of International Law

This book should be required reading in all international law courses. Its presents a cogent overview of the development of international law and offers sophisticated critique of the law from a feminist viewpoint. Throughout the book the author's dedication to scholarship is clearly evident. The book is both insightful and accessible. While avoiding the generalities that have become too prevalent in some recent texts on international law, it remains highly readable. For those wishing to teach or to familiarise themselves with modern understandings of international law, this book is amust read. --ANU Reporter
