This article explores the application of feminist method in the context of contemporary scholarly efforts to reclaim and/or refashion labour law as a discipline and field of study. The central methodological importance of gender as a category of analysis is highlighted and common critical techniques deployed by feminists to advance gender-inflected analysis identified and illustrated. A core insight the article seeks to advance is that because mainstream labour law scholars tend to approach feminism as animated solely by gender equality concerns, they overlook the broader analytical and conceptual contribution that feminist scholars can and do make to tackling and resolving key challenges and concerns arising from the social organization of work and its regulation.
