Despite the obvious growth in women's criminal prestige, the legislation keeps a profoundly male bias, and as such contributes to the pervasive violence and injustice opposed to ladies.

In A legislation of Her Own, the authors suggest to seriously change law's primary paradigm by means of introducing a "reasonable lady commonplace" for measuring men's habit. Advocating that courts observe this average to the behavior of men-and women-in felony settings the place girls are overwhelmingly the injured events, the authors search to get rid of the victimization and objectification of ladies by way of dismantling a part of the felony constitution that helps their subordination.

A woman-based felony standard-focusing on admire for physically integrity, enterprise, and autonomy-would aid rectify the imbalance in how society and its criminal approach view sexual and gender-based harassment, rape, stalking, battery, household imprisonment, violence, and dying.

Examining the unfairness of the prevailing "reasonable individual" regular via research of varied proceedings and judicial judgements, A legislation of Her Own goals to stability the legislations to include women's values surrounding intercourse and violence.
