Summary

“Is it possible to be both a judge and a feminist?” So opens Feminist Judgments, a collection of key decisions in English law rewritten by feminist legal scholars.1 It is a provocative question, and one that prompted us, a group of Critical Race Theorists, to open this book, Critical Race Judgments, with a similar question: “Is it possible to be both a judge and a Critical Race Theorist?” On one view, the answer is a resounding “no.” To put the point the way two critics of the genre once did, Critical Race Theory, which simply aims to expose and eliminate ongoing forms of racial inequality, is “beyond all reason.”2
