2016 Symposium: 35th Anniversary - Legal Feminism: Looking Back, Looking Forward, Part Two




Law & Inequality: A Journal of Theory and Practice Presents its 35th Annual Symposium Honoring Catharine A. MacKinnon and her work, Toward a Feminist Theory of State, at 30 years

In 1989, Catharine A. MacKinnon—the founder of Law & Inequality: A Journal of Theory and Practice—published her groundbreaking work, Toward a Feminists Theory of State. Since that date, her work has been cited countless times and her legal theories have influenced scholars and practitioners throughout the country and across the world.

The Journal’s 35th Anniversary Symposium honors MacKinnon and her influence on feminist legal theory. Specifically, the Symposium will examine Toward a Feminist Theory of State nearly 30 years after its publication, exploring where the arguments in the book stand today and what has yet to transpire in terms of its vision. Legal scholars and practitioners commented on MacKinnon’s feminist legal theories as applied to subjects including consent, evolving ideas about gender, international security, poverty, and family violence. MacKinnon delivers a responsive keynote address.
