Mary Anne Bobinski, University of Houston Law CenterPregnant Men shows how to implement anti-essentialist and equality perspectives in teaching, writing, and the practice of law. Because there are no pregnant men, equality theory is difficult to formulate in a reproductive health context. Instead, Colker examines cases involving men who are similarly situated to pregnant women and shows that pregnant women are, in fact, treated far worse than almost-pregnant men. The individual stories she tells are themselves fascinating, and they demonstrate Colker s model of a more practical feminist theory.
