Yale Journal of Law and Feminism

The YJLF is committed to publishing pieces about women's experiences, especially as they have been structured, affected, controlled, discussed, or ignored by the law. These experiences include the particular experiences of women of color and of lesbians. We encourage submissions of articles, essays, and reviews on any subject bearing upon the intersection of law and feminism..
