Arguments for women’s rights and equal status in law can be traced back many centuries, but it was not until the 1980s that the field of feminist legal studies was established as ‘a significant body of scholarship’ in many Western countries. This chapter describes that Ayelet Shachar’s monograph should be regarded as a leading work because it serves as an exemplar of the need for a feminist approach to Law and Religion studies and that it should play a more influential role in the Law and Religion literature.

Multicultural Jurisdictions reflects many of the concerns that can be found within feminist legal studies literature.
