Linda Hirshman Speaking Topics

How Social Movements Succeed (And Fail)

Why Women Work

Victory: The Triumphant Gay Revolution

How Sandra Day O'Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg Went to the Supreme Court and Changed the World

Hirshman's dual biography includes revealing stories of how these trailblazers fought for their own recognition in a male-dominated profession—battles that would ultimately benefit every American woman. She also makes clear how these two justices have shaped the legal framework of modern feminism, including employment discrimination, abortion, affirmative action, sexual harassment, and many other issues crucial to women's lives.

With access to hundreds of previously unpublished letters, Hirshman sheds new light on O'Connor's role in the Bush v. Gore decision, and how together the two women, strengthened by their mutual support, transformed the Constitution and laws of the nation to make it a more equal place for millions of women.

Sisters in Law combines legal detail with warm personal anecdotes that bring these very different women into focus as never before. Meticulously researched and compellingly told, it is an authoritative account of our changing law and culture, and a moving story of a remarkable friendship.
