Routledge research in gender and politics ; 3.
"Drawing from postcolonial feminism, feminist institutionalism, feminist legal theory, and legal narratives, this book provides ... narratives of seven women judges that challenge existing discourse on gender diversity in international courts. It answers important questions about how the politics of judicial appointments, gender, geographic location, class, and professional capital combine to shape the lives of women judges who sit on international courts and argues the need to disaggregate gender diversity with a view to understanding intra-group differences"--Provided by the publisher.
