Edited by: Heather Douglas, Francesca Bartlett, Trish Luker, Rosemary Hunter

This book brings together feminist academics and lawyers to present an impressive collection of alternative judgments in a series of Australian legal cases. By re-imagining original legal decisions through a feminist lens, the collection explores the possibilities, limits and implications of feminist approaches to legal decision-making. 

Each case is accompanied by a brief commentary that places it in legal and historical context and explains what the feminist rewriting does differently to the original case. The cases not only cover topics of long-standing interest to feminist scholars such as family law, sexual offences and discrimination law, but also areas which have had less attention, including Indigenous sovereignty, constitutional law, immigration, taxation and environmental law. 

The collection contributes a distinctly Australian perspective to the growing international literature investigating the role of feminist legal theory in judicial decision-making.

Heather Douglas and Francesca Bartlett research and teach at the T C Beirne School of Law, The University of Queensland. Trish Luker is a Chancellor's Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Faculty of Law, University of Technology, Sydney Rosemary Hunter is a Professor at Kent Law School, University of Kent.
