Each profile contains extended biographical information and details significant achievements and contributions to the law made by each woman, followed by references. Forty-three women who have made major contributions to the law through their work in the legal profession, scholarly legal research, and political activism directed at socio-legal reforms are profiled in this bio-bibliographical sourcebook. The women featured are from countries and regions with a Western legal tradition, including North America, Europe, Israel, Japan, the Philippines, and Africa. Each profile contains extended biographical information-their family backgrounds, education, and career development-and their significant achievements and contributions to law. The women featured include a number of those who were path-breakers like Sandra Day O'Connor, the first woman justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, and Bertha Wilson, the first woman to sit on the Canadian Supreme Court. Scholars like Margaret Somerville (Canada) and Beverly Blair Cook (U.S.), and political activists like Helene St^Docker (Germany) and Leah Tsemel (Israel) are also included. The introduction to the work presents a comprehensive and historical overview of the role of women as citizens, scholars, lawyers, judges, office holders, and activists, and also provides a review of the scholarship on women in law.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is a compilation of profiles of 43 women who have made significant contributions to their societies through their work in the legal profession, scholarly legal research, or political activism directed at sociolegal reforms...Unique in scope, this noteworthy volume provides the reader with an in-depth view of women who made a difference in Western societies through the vehicle of the law."-Booklist/Reference Books Bulletin
"'Well balanced and well documented' describes this split-personality reference source. It would be useful as an encyclopedia of biography alone, but doubles as an informal bibliography. It profiles 43 women from many countries, giving family background, education, career development, achievements, and contributions....Good for research and general reference; highly recommended for all libraries."-Choice
