This text argues that the role of feminist legal theory should be to understand, describe, explain, criticize, and change law from the perspective and on behalf of women. Because the law is based almost exclusively on men's experience and their view of themselves, other men, women, and children, women's experience is systematically ignored, trivialized, or manipulated. The first part deals with the theoretical and practical problem of determining just what is women's experience as opposed to men's or human experience in general. Theoretical discussion is grounded in a number of concrete concerns to women as pregnant workers, as working parents, as battered wives and girlfriends, and as divorced mothers. Part Two takes on the key categories used to deal with women's legal issues, namely equality, autonomy, and privacy. In Part Three, the author addresses the primary social issues on the feminist agenda.
