Equality at a crossroads: Rethinking equality in family law.
Jennifer C. Mathers
Written in English
The author examines equality in the family context, particularly in spousal relationships, in the wake of the legalization of same-sex marriage and a history of rapid changes for the law as it applies to common law couples. She argues that equality in family law is at a crossroads, and that recent legal changes to the institution of marriage provide an opportunity to rethink equality in spousal relationships and begin to move away from a system which encourages and perpetuates dependancy and, therefore, inequality.

Since the mids, increasing international attention has been paid to the issue of violence against women.
However, there is still no explicit international human rights treaty prohibition on violence against women and the issue remains poorly defined and understood under international human rights : Alice Edwards. Family law has been reformed accordingly, and social rights and entitlements have increasingly become tied to the individual.

In classrooms Arthur M. Okun may be best remembered for Okun's Law, but his lasting legacy is the respect and admiration he earned from economists, practitioners, and policymakers.
