Sammanfattning

This book investigates the relationship between feminist activism and legal reform as a pathway to gender justice and social change. Since the advent of feminist movements, legal reform has been a popular and yet contentious vehicle for seeking women's rights and empowerment. The book looks at comparative insights drawn from field-based research on the processes, the challenges, and the outcomes of legal reform and feminist activism. It brings together cases from the Middle East, Latin America, and Asia of the successes and failures of reform efforts concerning the promulgation and implementation of new family laws and domestic violenc codes
