Postponed until further notice
Join us at the Center for Women's History for thrilling programs and intimate conversations with scholars, journalists, artists, activists, businesswomen, and more amazing leaders of today. Guided by its expert committee of scholars, the Center has a full calendar of public events and salons to explore.
This year, the U.S. Supreme Court will revisit one of its most contested topics—abortion rights—for the first time in decades, in a case that could unsettle years of precedent. Join Irin Carmon of New York magazine, in conversation with an expert panel of legal scholars and authors including Michele Goodwin of University of California, Irvine, and author of Policing the Womb: Invisible Women and the Criminalization of Motherhood; Kate Shaw of Cardozo Law School and co-director of the Floersheimer Center for Constitutional Democracy; and Mary Ziegler of Florida State University and author of Beyond Abortion: Roe v. Wade and the Fight for Privacy, as they explain what the new case is about, how we got here, and what's next for the future of reproductive rights.
Refreshments will be served.
