Western critical legal scholarship has steadily exposed the dissolute functions of the common law tradition, and transgressed its ‘deference’ to closed logic and doctrinal assumptions of ‘neutrality’ and ‘objectivity’. Feminist legal scholarship has contributed significantly to this project by using new and varied voices to challenge the primacy of the text and by seeking vantage points that expose the gendered normative strategies by which doctrinal law constructs and maintains the dominant social, economic, and political order (Davies 2017, 224–297).
