Legal Realism, Feminism, Legal Theory – Madison

The University of Wisconsin School of Law hosts New Legal Realism Meets Feminism & Legal Theory II: Empirical Perspectives on the Place of Law in Women’s Work and Family Lives , Oct. 5-6, 2007, Madison.

Women working in a variety of settings face challenges rooted in traditional cultural and social patterns surrounding gender. These challenges include barriers in the workplace, the historic divisions between work and family lives, and cultural conceptualizations of “work” itself. This conference draws together empirical and legal perspectives to examine the different strategies and models women have used in addressing the dilemmas of work and family.

The conference is cosponsored by the Feminism and Legal Theory Project, Emory University, and the New Legal Realism Project, University of Wisconsin-Madison.
