Abstract

• What different legal outcomes might have been produced through feminist legal reasoning in leading Northern/Irish case law? • What can feminist judging reveal about the techniques of identity politics as they appear in Northern/Irish case law? • How can feminist legal theory contribute to a re-thinking of gendered judicial techniques and legal concepts in Northern/Ireland? • How have Northern/Irish women used litigation to challenge the boundaries of membership in gendered religious, national and other groupings? What are the obstacles and limitations to such litigation? • How have Northern/Irish feminist movements conceived of the role of the judge in approving or dissenting from judicial pronouncements?
