Scales describes the purpose of her essay as follows: 'This essay concerns feminist efforts to live with, and ultimately to resist, abstraction itself'. She goes on to suggest that 'our tendency as lawyers to seek comprehensive rules in accordance with that norm is a dangerous learned reflex which defeats feminism's critique of objectification'. 1986 95 Yale L.J. 1373
