This collection of essays brings together work of a leading figure within feminist legal thought and provides an excellent example of the particular contribution of feminism to analysis of the legal system. The essays engage with, respond to and develop a variety of feminist perspectives upon law and demonstrate the enormous, challenging and exciting task ahead for feminist legal theorists. Jo Bridgeman Modern Law Review September 2002 Lacey exemplifies the best characteristics of British academic writing, namely, a sincere attempt to convey complex positions and arguments as clearly as possible and an uncompromising honesty about her own work which means that her critical gaze is as much directed at her own views as at others. David Dyzenhaus Philosophical Books September 2002
