Welcome to Women Negotiating the Boundaries of Justice!

A collaborative project which explores women's access to justice across Britain and Ireland, c.1100 and c.1750.

Our research, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, seeks a greater understanding of women's involvement in the legal processes of Britain and Ireland. Taking a comparative approach, we investigate how women's experiences were determined by national boundaries, language, ethnicity, confessional identity, life-cycle stage, and social status.

Across the website you will find information about the project team, our research activities and the events we are organising. Team members will report on their latest findings and activities in the project's blog. This website is updated regularly, so please visit frequently for the latest news and views.
