"While both lawyers and psychologists have been aware of the role of stereotypes in discrimination, there is little literature addressing the legal status of stereotypes as gender discrimination. Gender Stereotyping makes a substantial contribution to the field by bringing the insights of psychology to bear on the legal approaches in a sophisticated way."-Susan Williams, Walter W. Foskett Professor of Law, Indiana University "This book unquestionably forms the most thorough investigation of international legal perspectives on gender stereotyping to date. It is an essential contribution to the debate on stereotypes and the law. The authors deserve the highest praise."-Human Rights Law Review
