Saru Matambanadzo is a nationally known authority on gender equality and workplace equity whose scholarship examines issues through robust engagement with critical legal theory, feminist legal theory and questions of legal personhood.

With grounding in continental and analytic philosophy and women’s studies as well as law, she takes an interdisciplinary approach to exploring legal personhood, animal rights, legal education and laws related to pregnancy. She joined the Tulane Law faculty in 2010 after receiving a PhD in women’s studies from UCLA. In 2014-15, she was Tulane Law’s inaugural Gordon Gamm Faculty Scholar, an award to support the work of early-career professors.
Matambanadzo has taught seminars and courses in gender and legal studies at UCLA, California State University, Long Beach, and the University of Oregon. She is the author of the newest edition of West’s Sex Discrimination in a Nutshell (forthcoming 2016).  She has also published on legal sex for transgender persons, philosophy of legal education, legal personhood and feminist legal theory. Her article "Reconstructing Pregnancy," focusing on the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, is scheduled for publication in the SMU Law Review in 2016.
