Lady Justice: Women, the Law, and the Battle to Save America

How significant political changes affect the Jewish community.
Feb 28, 2023

In her new book, Lady Justice: Women, the Law, and the Battle to Save America, Dahlia Lithwick, one of the nation’s foremost legal commentators and a Senior Fellow at the Shalom Hartman Institute’s Kogod Research Center, tells the gripping and heroic story of the women lawyers who fought the racism, sexism, and xenophobia of Donald Trump’s presidency—and won. Masua Sagiv, Hartman Scholar in Residence, Koret Visiting Assistant Professor of Jewish and Israel Studies at UC Berkeley, and a scholar of the intersection of law, religion, and gender talks with Lithwick about these women, their stories, and the impact of their efforts on America and the Jewish community.

This session is part of Ideas for Today, curated courses by Hartman Institute scholars on the big Jewish ideas we need to think better and do better.
