Doris Buss and Ambreena Manji (eds.), International Law: Modern Feminist Approaches

BOOK REVIEWS – CRITIQUE BIBLIOGRAPHIQUE International Law: Modern Feminist Approaches, edited by Doris Buss and Ambreena Manji [Oxford: Hart Publishing, 2005] pp. 315 Particularly in the last quarter of a century, international law has been confronted by the unfaltering vigour of a global community of feminist scholars, lawyers and activists who have sought to advance and realise the seemingly straightforward notion that women’s rights are human rights, a notion that despite its simplicity was not recognised by the international community even in formal terms until 1993.1 Despite this formal recognition, of course, the notion remains conspicuously far from practical realisation. Endemic to the struggle is that new and uncomplicated notions are not easily accommodated within complex and longstanding structures that have been built by others and for others, in this case masculine economic, legal, political and social systems and institutions. Given that the gap between words and actions (much less results) on the part of national governments remains as large as it is, the time to reflect upon international legal feminism’s approaches, strategies and tactics is indeed upon us. This is precisely what Doris Buss and Ambreena Manji have set out to do in their new book International http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png African Journal of International and Comparative Law Edinburgh University Press
