Law and the Philosophy of Privacy draws upon contemporary feminist philosophy in order to consider the meaning of legal personhood, its relationship to human freedom and autonomy and its connection to what is classified as public and private.

Contemporary feminist philosophy has much to say about the ways in which we have understood what it means to be a person and to have rights in law. Women’s contingent and historical position can be used as a tool to highlight tensions in traditional views of personhood.

However, Janice Richardson goes beyond this critique to explore how the legal and political implications of feminist critiques of legal personhood can found new ways of thinking about ourselves and law that is applicable to both men and women.
