Practice, Theory, and the Law
"An important contribution to the fields of feminist jurisprudence and feminist theory."Â -- Mary Anne Bobinski, University of Houston Law Center
Pregnant Men shows how to implement anti-essentialist and equality perspectives in teaching, writing, and the practice of law. Because there are no "pregnant men," equality theory is difficult to formulate in a reproductive health context. Instead, Colker examines cases involving men who are similarly situated to pregnant women -- and shows that pregnant women are, in fact, treated far worse than "almost-pregnant" men. The individual stories she tells are themselves fascinating, and they demonstrate Colker's model of a more practical feminist theory.
