Remembering the Founding of the Journal of Gender and Law

Fredrickson, Caroline

In this article, Caroline Fredrickson looks back on why she and her friends first started the Columbia Journal of Gender and Law after feeling that law school was a somewhat strange and alienating environment and didn’t seem to provide then with what they were seeking. The underlying philosophy of JGL: an interdisciplinary approach to the problems that continue to confound our society in terms of gender and race and the simultaneous disadvantages that affect women of color.
