Rebecca Cook, editor of Frontiers of Gender Equality – Transnational Legal Perspectives (UPenn Press, 2023), https://frontiersofgenderequality.ca/ will explain the origins, challenges and gratifications of planning and editing this volume and why it is important in this age of backlash against gender equality.
In Frontiers of Gender Equality, editor Rebecca Cook enlarges the chorus of voices to introduce new and different discourses about the wrongs of gender discrimination and to explain the multiple dimensions of gender equality. This volume demonstrates that the wrongs of discrimination can best be understood from the perspective of the discriminated, and that gender discrimination persists and grows in new and different contexts, widening the gap between the principle of gender equality and its realization, particularly for subgroups of women and LGBTQ+ peoples.
