Most significantly, it brings to bear new social science research and theorizing that tackles the difficult and challenging issue of exposing and proving the presence of gender discrimination that is cultural and structural. . . . Engaging and persuasive."
—Nancy Dowd, David H. Levin Chair in Family Law, University of Florida
