Feminist Perspectives on Tort Law brings together acknowledged experts in these two areas to pursue a distinctly feminist approach to the major areas of tort law.

The first half of the book addesses negligence - including an examination of feminist issues in relation to the duty of care, procreative injuries and loss, police negligence, psychiatric harm, the standard of care and product liability.

The second half of the book takes up the nominate torts: the personal torts - including the recently expanding area of privacy and torts in relation to sexual wrong and rape - and land torts - including environmental issues and gender.

The final chapter of the volume considers the way in which gender affects the courts’ calculation of damages to the detriment of women. International in its scope, and accessibly written, Feminist Perspectives on Tort Law will be required reading for students, scholars and practitioners.
