Feminism and Law: Theoretical Approaches
People who identity as equal feminist are liberal feminist
The system itself is okay, the laws that we have is okay, the
di%erence that we have is that women have not gotten the same
opportunity as men
The critique was that the assumtptions that the lway law works
don’t allow for a feminist [erspective, law will still be di%erent, the
changes need to be more fundamental
Critiques: equality of opportunity show that men are a standard and
women are a class (employment isurane program but maternatity
leave)  mat. Leave money comes from employment insurance
Its not just saying to add women in, its saying to rethinking
fundamtenally all of the laws that we have
The law was written by men for men, women were just added in
later
need to ensure the same…” don’t just add women in, think about
them properly because they are di%erent
Cultural Feminism
Women and men think and answer di%erent
Women have an ethic of care
They argue that because of that, law should inclus that ethic of care
of women
Is there really proof that men and women really have di%erences
(female and male judges make the same decisions in court)
Radical Feminism
