    Wench Tactics? Openings in Conditions of Closure.Ruth Fletcher, Diamond Ashiagbor, Nicola Barker, Katie Cruz, Nadine El-Enany, Nikki Godden-Rasul, Emily Grabham, Sarah Keenan, Ambreena Manji, Julie McCandless, Sheelagh McGuinness, Sara Ramshaw, Yvette Russell, Harriet Samuels, Ann Stewart & Dania Thomas - 2017 - Feminist Legal Studies 25 (1):1-23.
    Picking up the question of what FLaK might be, this editorial considers the relationship between openness and closure in feminist legal studies. How do we draw on feminist struggles for openness in common resources, from security to knowledge, as we inhabit a compromised space in commercial publishing? We think about this first in relation to the content of this issue: on image-based abuse continuums, asylum struggles, trials of protestors, customary justice, and not-so-timely reparations. Our thoughts take us through the different (...)

    Thinking Sexual Difference Through the Law of Rape.Yvette Russell - 2013 - Law and Critique 24 (3):255-275.
    2013 marks 10 years since the Sexual Offences Act 2003 was passed. That Act made significant changes to the law of rape which appear now to have made very little difference to reporting, prosecution or conviction rates. This article argues that the Act has failed against its own measures because it remains enmeshed within a conceptual framework of sexual indifference in which woman continues to be constructed as man’s other. This construction both constricts the frame in which women’s sexuality can (...)

    Internationalism and Commitment at the Kitchen Table.Ruth Fletcher, Julie McCandless, Yvette Russell & Dania Thomas - 2016 - Feminist Legal Studies 24 (1):1-6.
    The contributors to this issue focus on legal internationalism, including hybrid mixes with nationalist forms. They have provoked us as editors to think more about these sites and forms of engagement. Sankey shows how civic participation in the ECCC has played a key role in surfacing the gendered harms of separation and starvation. Turan highlights the problems with ICC exclusion of the experience of men and boys from sexual violence. Peroni expresses her hesitations over the Istanbul Convention given an association (...)

    A Wench’s Guide to Surviving a ‘Global’ Pandemic Crisis: Feminist Publishing in a Time of COVID-19.Zainab Batul Naqvi & Yvette Russell - 2020 - Feminist Legal Studies 28 (2):113-131.
    It has been quite a year so far and as the wenches we are, we have been taking our time to collect our thoughts and reflections before sharing them at the start of this issue of the journal. In this editorial we think through the COVID-19 pandemic and its devastating effects on the world, on our lives and on our editorial processes. We renew our commitment to improving our operations as a journal and its health along with our own as (...)

    On Being Uncomfortable.Ruth Fletcher, Julie McCandless, Yvette Russell & Dania Thomas - 2016 - Feminist Legal Studies 24 (2):121-126.
    Since the last issue of Feminist Legal Studies, we editorial board members have had lots of conversations about comfort, displacement and alienation. As we developed the programme for #FLaK2016 we thought about it as a kind of pulling ourselves out of our comfort zone, if academic events and journals ever have a comfort zone. Drawing on a mix of feminist live performance methods and a science and technology studies-type curiosity for objects of experimentation, we tried out a kitchen table method (...)

    Rape Myths, Law, and Feminist Research: ‘Myths About Myths’?Joanne Conaghan & Yvette Russell - 2014 - Feminist Legal Studies 22 (1):25-48.
    In an article recently published in the Oxford Journal of Legal Studies, the legal scholar Helen Reece argues that the prevalence and effects of rape myths have been overstated and the designation of certain beliefs and attitudes as myths is simply wrong. Feminist researchers, she argues, are engaged ‘in a process of creating myths about myths’ in a way that serves to close down and limit productive debate in this ‘vexed’ area. In this article we argue that Reece’s analysis is (...)

    Back at the Kitchen Table: Reflections on Decolonising and Internationalising with the Global South Socio-Legal Writing Workshops.Zainab Batul Naqvi, Ruth Fletcher, Diamond Ashiagbor, Katie Cruz & Yvette Russell - 2019 - Feminist Legal Studies 27 (2):123-137.
    It has been three years since we held the Feminism, Legality and Knowledge seminar to respond to our developing frustrations and excitement around feminist legal studies and academic publishing. In the wake of our 25th anniversary in 2018, we critically reflect further on our original intention to stock up on decolonising techniques to mix feminism, legality and knowledge whilst building on previous consideration of our self-proclaimed ‘international’ status. These reflections are prompted by editorial board members’ experiences as participants in the (...)

    On November 20, 2014, Professor Joanne Conaghan and Dr. Yvette Russell met at the University of Bristol Law School to discuss Conaghan’s most recent book Law and Gender. This paper is an edited transcript of their discussion, the question and answer session with the audience that followed, and includes Conaghan’s reflections on her long and varied career as a feminist legal scholar.

    Law’s Vulnerability, and Vulnerability in Law.Dania Thomas, Yvette Russell, Julie McCandless & Ruth Fletcher - 2016 - Feminist Legal Studies 24 (3):243-247.
    Vulnerability acts as a touchstone in this issue as we find our contributors reflecting on its intersection with gender and sexuality in different ways. Saeidzadeh draws out the significance of misrecognition in her consideration of responses to transsexuality in Iran, while Doonan highlights the potential pitfalls of relying on situational vulnerability in her critique of anti-trafficking legal discourse in the US. Lindsey considers the legal potential of situational vulnerability as a tool to address the ‘persistent failure to take action against (...)
