Sample text

Differences and inter-gender commonalities are erased. In efforts to avoid reification and essentialism, feminists have developed a diversity of theoretical approaches to law that collectively have shifted the analytical focus from law as an instrument to law as a gendering practice. (Chunn & Lacombe 2000: 6-7) Approaches to law as a gendering practice are inspired by a “social constructionist conception of law as a hegemonic discourse that can be deconstructed and reshaped through the mobilisation of feminist counter-discourses’’ (Chunn & Lacombe 2000: 2).

Law reform efforts were seen by most radical feminists to be misguided projects likely to be co-opted until women, through consciousnessraising, came to see the artificiality of these dichotomies and took direct control over sexuality and reproduction through separatist strategies. Although the radical feminist realization that legal structures were neither impartial nor objective but contained fundamentally androcentric biases was important, many feminists became frustrated by the theoretical and practical obstacles inherent in both the radical and liberal approaches as well as their lack of politically workable strategies: Two main problems have been identified, both of which stem from the instrumentalist, dichotomous analytical focus of liberal and radical feminisms.
