Description

No organization has been more active in fighting the inequalities of the law than the Women's Legal Education and Action Fund (LEAF), a feminist advocacy group established to bring forward cases under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
In a penetrating analysis of women's rights before the law, Razack considers the history of LEAF and its work. She begins by exploring the language of rights in liberal theory and the impact of postmodernist thought. Razack then considers the role of women in the legal system, and how the law fails to address adequately the situation of women. She reviews the cases on which LEAF has focused, the legal issues involved, and the feminist principles which come into play. In total, she has compiled a compelling case study of legal advocacy with implications for all those struggling to create a more equitable body of law.
