Which legal precedents once limited women’s equality and treatment under the law, from Chief Justice John Marshall’s lifetime in the Early Republic to present? What journey has taken place in the United States to progress women’s access to and equality within the male-dominated legal sphere, and what progress is still left to accomplish?
Join Preservation Virginia’s John Marshall House on February 21st at 7 p.m. for “Landmark Ladies: Women and the Supreme Court.” This virtual program will explore both the trailblazers, and the trailblazing moments, for women in politics and law. Additionally, we will unpack several court decisions that have impacted American women, and review the significance of each of the six women who have served on the highest court in the land–a bench Chief Justice John Marshall never envisioned them occupying. We invite you to pay-what-you-will to support this and future programming. Participants must register for this event in advance.
