NIP: Creating New Categories': Anglo-American Radical Feminism's Constitutionalism in the Streets

‘Creating New Categories’: Anglo-American Radical Feminism’s Constitutionalism in the Streets

by Yxta Maya Murray (loyola) now on  SSRN.

Drawing on the work of Reva Siegel, Jack M. Balkin, and Lynda G. Dodd, I will then consider how the U.S. and British protesters influenced their countries’ respective constitutional cultures and future feminist legal theories. Each camp’s approach to outrage, law-breaking, and violence in street protest would later be felt in successes and failures on the constitutional front, and also resound in a law-faithful U.S. feminism that differs significantly from its skeptical, anti-authoritarian British complement.
