The position of women in the legal system of England and Wales differs from that of men in both obvious and very subtle ways, and has a long legal history as well as very contemporary importance. This book looks at these issues through topics such as women's employment rights, their treatment as both criminals and victims of crime, and reproductive autonomy. It introduces the issues, the debates and the wider theories on women and law. Topics covered include: women's legal theory; women's legal history; women's economic position; women and crime; personal autonomy; reproductive issues; sexuality and cultural representations.
