Women and Justice takes a sociolegal look at the historical and contemporary state of justice in women''s lives. Sheryl Grana thoroughly examines civil justice issues such as marriage, divorce, same-sex coupling, motherhood, education and paid work, as well as criminal justice issues such as women''s criminality. Grounded in the framework of the working term, ''quadraplexation,'' this text seeks understanding and promotes the continued march toward a more just world for women.
