On October 6, 2022 FOLCS was joined for a Conversation with Slate senior legal correspondent and MSNBC contributor, Dahlia Lithwick, who is also a longtime FOLCS friend and former guest, to discuss her new book, Lady Justice: Women, the Law, and the Battle to Save America.
The Women’s March was not the only thing that arose from Donald Trump’s 2017 inauguration. Women lawyers showed up, too. Lithwick tells a story that has gone largely unreported, taking her readers on an American journey of crusading women standing firm on civil liberties, whether it involved defending abortion rights, opposing the Muslim travel ban, or even challenging the neo-Nazis who marched Charlottesville.
