Robin West’s Jurisprudence and Gender has justly had considerable influence. West argues persuasively that people concerned with achieving sex equality need to do both practical, political work and theoretical, conceptual work. If the concepts and normative theories remain incompletely developed, they will offer defective guidance to practical work. Therefore, “[f]eminism must envision a post-patriarchal world, for without such a vision we have little direction.” This contention is both true and important.
