About this book


Despite the availability of some formal legal remedies, women lawyers rarely challenge discriminatory behaviour. This book explores this seemingly contradictory situation, and by exploring lawyers' use of legal discourse in an Internet community, Baumle examines whether the law can in fact serve as a useful tool to challenge inequality.
