dc.description.abstractThis is the first of two volumes of Scutt's collected writing. The material in this volume dates back to 1980 but makes reference to material as far back as the 1960s. It is a reminder of how little has changed that many of the issues raised in the material continue to have great relevance to current questions of law reform. For example, Scutt was recommending judicial education (p 38) and gun law reform (p 111) in the 1970s and yet these are still issues on the agenda. Given the backlash against feminism and against the idea that equality can recognise and incorporate difference, this book is timely. It recognises that the problem is not women's difference per se but that this difference has been measured against a male standpoint and invariably falls short. As a result, women are seen to be 'incredible' (p iv), 'sick' (p 30), 'disorderly' (p 144), 'insane' (p 216), 'abnormal'(p 223) and so on, when compared to men.
