About the Harvard Journal of Law and Gender
Founded in 1977 and currently on the 47th volume, the Harvard Journal of Law and Gender (originally the Harvard Women’s Law Journal) is the nation’s oldest continuously publishing feminist law journal. JLG is an intersectional feminist publication, devoted to the advancement of feminist jurisprudence and the study of law and gender. We seek to clarify legal issues that have gendered aspects and implications, confront new challenges to full social equality, and explore the interconnections between race, class, sexuality, nationality, ability, and gender in the law.
