BECAUSE OF SEX and A LAW OF HER OWN
AbstractThough published more than ten years apart, it is timely to review these volumes together. Both books adopt an historical perspective on women under men’s laws, with a strong message for the contemporary world. Because of Sex traces developments constituting, and bringing about, advances in how the law addresses women’s work and roles, and consequent change in society. A Law of Her Own proposes how the law should adopt a revised approach, substituting the ‘reasonable woman’ standard for the existing - generally ubiquitous – ‘reasonable man’ or ‘reasonable person’ standard – which Because of Sex indicates has at least to some degree, in some instances, occurred.
