The purpose of Feminist Judgments: Rewritten Health Law Opinions is to broaden to health law the inquiry begun with the original volume and continued with other books in the series. The health law volume seeks to demonstrate how feminist analysis can transform law in a field where paternalism, gender stereotypes, and tensions between the personal and the public shape judicial decisions about patient autonomy, quality and coordination of care, and health care financing. This volume seeks to expand the inquiry to the full breadth of topics covered in an introductory health law course. These include informed consent, end-of-life decision-making, regulation of health care professionals, private insurance discrimination, access to public benefits, public health interventions, biomedical research, and more.
