Five LSU Law faculty members are part of a global collaboration of feminist law professors who are reimagining and rewriting key judicial decisions from a feminist perspective.
The U.S. Feminist Judgments Project recognizes that the law is profoundly affected by the judges who interpret it. The project reimagines key decisions through a “feminist perspective that takes into account race, class, gender, disability and other status groups historically marginalized by the law.” Through a series of texts devoted to different subject areas, the U.S. Feminist Judgments Project shows the importance of feminist thought to all areas of the law and illustrates “that feminist judges could have changed the course of American jurisprudence.”
Each volume in the Project consists of rewritten opinions and accompanying commentary from feminist law professors who are experts in their respective fields of law. Participating LSU Law faculty members included:
- Lisa Avalos, State v. Walden (commentary); Feminist Judgments: Criminal Law Opinions Rewritten
- Andrea Carroll, Blake v. Stradford (commentary); Feminist Judgments: Property Law Opinions Rewritten
- Elizabeth Carter, Drevenik v. Nardone (commentary); Feminist Judgments: Trusts and Estates Opinions Rewritten
- Christina Sautter, Revlon, Inc. v. MacAndrews & Forbes Holdings, Inc. (rewritten opinion); Feminist Judgments: Corporate Law Opinions Rewritten
- Madalyn Wasilczuk, Coker v. Georgia (commentary); Feminist Judgments: Criminal Law Opinions Rewritten
