Beschreibung

In this intimate portrait of an institution, America's first female Supreme Court Justice traces the Court's history to its inner workings in contemporary life. By couching her narrative in her personal reflections, she shows how landmark cases, key ideas, and influential people have built the Court as an edifice that continues to demand active interpretation. Her book particularly emphasizes the turbulent battle women have fought in the legal system since America's inception, her own position an expression of the labors of the suffrage movement and its efforts to change the lives of American women in voting booths, jury boxes, and homes. One of the most powerful women in American history tells us what she thinks matters most in American law.
