Description

This book examines the interaction between women and the law through a cultural holistic framework. Dr Easteal identifies various 'lenses' or 'mirrors' within our culture that affect how women fare in their contact with the Australian legal system. The reader learns how the dominant culture and the law's construction of reality may not correspond with many women's experiences. Less than Equal - Women and the Australian Legal System challenges readers to become aware of and to examine their own biases and understandings of key concepts underlying western liberalism. The book suggests both micro-type answers and 'big picture' changes necessary to make the picture in the 'cultural kaleidoscope' more inclusive of women's voices, experience and knowledge.
