This title forms part of a series on Anglo-American legal theory. It explores the relationship between gender and justice. The essays have been drawn primarily from lawyers working in the common law tradition. However, work by non-lawyers has been included to assist with the definition of its basic terms. Some terms which are debated are ""gender"", ""woman"", ""man"", and ""human nature"". The aim is to scrutinize the deployment of these without losing the sense of practical reality.;The text considers the ""woman question"", that is, the gender bias experienced by women in all areas of life. To be a man is to see one's own sex largely in control of legal and political life. It points out that while it is difficult to make sense of the disadvantages experienced by women without taking into account the relative experiences of men, the reverse is not true. The study of male justice, though rarely delineated or designated thus, has rarely entailed the explicit study of men in relation to women.
