The chapter reviews contemporary gender law reform, as successes and as embedding feminist tensions, to consider future feminist dialogues on international law. Chapter 1 argues for the use of intersectional feminist approaches alongside a politics of difference to embed feminist methodologies alongside feminist messages within international law. The chapter also identifies queer, crip, postcolonial, transnational, and critical scholarship that might be drawn into feminist dialogues on law.
