9781780329628: Feminist Activism, Women's Rights, and Legal Reform (Feminisms and Development)

This ground-breaking collection investigates the relationship between feminist activism and legal reform as a pathway to gender justice and social change.

Since the advent of feminist movements in the Global South and North, legal reform has been a popular and yet contentious vehicle of seeking women's rights and empowerment. Accordingly, law has been an important focus of feminist scholarship. This important book will contribute to such scholarship, with comparative insights drawn from field-based research on the processes, the challenges, and the outcomes of legal reform and feminist activism from a number of countries in different regions of the world.

Feminist Activism, Women's Rights and Legal Reform brings together cases from Middle East, Latin America and Asia of the successes and failures of reform efforts concerning the promulgation and implementation of new family laws and domestic violence codes.
