It went on to inspire a legion of women lawyers and feminist legal rulings, from the Family Law Act 1996 to the legal definition of ‘violence...

Whilst there has been an abundance of scientific works to have come from the COVID-19 crisis, there has been relatively little to date from its sister subject, the humanities. Now, a striking new title seeks to address the immediacy of COVID-19 by focusing on the implications of the virus in a wider interdisciplinary context– through the lens of the law, history, ethics, technology, economics and gender studies.

Researchers from around the world offer their critical reflections on the COVID crisis; on the past, present and future of a period of socio-cultural upheaval and tremendous suffering that has laid bare fundamental imbalances in our society. From Europe, to South America, Asia and beyond, Law, Humanities...
