The public sex of the judiciary: the appearance of the irrelevant and the invisible
Moran, Leslie J. (2011) The public sex of the judiciary: the appearance of the irrelevant and the invisible. In: Jones, J. and Greer, A. and Fenton, R.A. and Stevenson, K. (eds.) Gender, Sexualities and Law. Abingdon, UK: Routledge, pp. 79-91. ISBN 9780415574396.
Book synopsis: Bringing together an international range of academics, Gender, Sexualities and Law provides a comprehensive interrogation of the range of contemporary issues – both topical and controversial – raised by the gendered character of law, legal discourse and institutions. The gendering of law, persons and the legal profession, along with the gender bias of legal outcomes, has been a fractious, but fertile, focus of reflection. It has, moreover, been an important site of political struggle. This collection of essays offers an unrivalled examination of its various contemporary dimensions, focusing on: issues of theory and representation; violence, both national and international; reproduction and parenting; and partnership, sexuality, marriage and the family. Gender, Sexualities and Law will be invaluable for all those engaged in research and study of the law (and related fields) as a form of gendered power.
