This volume explores how feminist legal thought and action had an important place in the broader landscape of women’s history, legal history, and the history of modern France. It systematically analyzes the collective activism of feminist lawyers during the first half of the twentieth century to examine the politicizing effect of professional work on women, the prevalence of reform ideas in legal circles, and feminists’ influence on the law.
