Women and the Law: A "Greatest Hits" of Scholarship from the Past Year

I just published the 2015 edition of Women and the Law for West. 

This is an annual collection of what I call the "greatest hits" in legal scholarship from the past year on women's rights. It includes sections on reproductive rights, family, employment, domestic violence, feminist theory, and sometimes education.

Here's this year's awesome lineup.
