The Supreme Court was founded in 1789. It “only” took 192 years but women finally earned a seat on the bench thanks to trailblazers Sandra Day O’Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
In a provocative, eye-opening soon-to-be published book, author and long-time Phoenician, Linda Hirshman, tells the story of the historic roles Justices O’Connor and Ginsburg have played in the ongoing struggle for gender equality -- on the bench and beyond. Sisters In Law: How Sandra Day O'Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg Went to the Supreme Court and Changed the World is the first-ever look at the important, and measured, friendship between two women whose alliance rose above political and jurisprudential differences -- and which provides a role model for such an approach in our own careers.
Please join us on April 8 for a pre-publication lunch and revealing discussion with Ms. Hirshman. You will be moved by Ms. Hirshman’s discussion of how and why the cases the Justices decided have a left a profound legacy for women and girls in America in their careers, education and sports.
Critical praise for Sisters In Law: How Sandra Day O'Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg Went to the Supreme Court and Changed the World:
“Linda Hirshman has written a thorough, accurate, and most readable account of the careers of the two first women to serve as Justices of the Supreme Court. Laymen as well as lawyers will learn a great deal, not only about these two special people, but about today’s Court as well.” —Justice John Paul Stevens
“Linda Hirshman’s joint biography of Sandra Day O’Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg is fascinating and informative but is also joyful -- a stirring reminder of how these two pioneers for women’s rights have advanced the cause in their singular but complementary ways.” —Jeffrey Toobin, author of The Oath and The Nine
