Discovering Constance Backhouse
Once in a while I discover an author I adore and that is the case with Canadian legal historian and law professor Constance Backhouse. I wish I had been introduced to her when I began reading Jane Austen, at around the age of sixteen or seventeen. At the moment I am reading her 1991 book Petticoats and Prejudice: Women and Law in Nineteeth-Century Canada, which I have been wrapped up in all day. I will certainly reference it in my book.
