The event gathers major figures in the development of women’s rights  law and highlights the connections between Rutgers and that history.  United States Supreme Court Justice   Ruth Bader Ginsburg will deliver the  keynote address. Professor Catharine MacKinnon will deliver closing remarks.

Speakers also include Professor Sarah Burns of NYU School of Law,  Professor Sally Goldfarb of Rutgers School of Law-Camden, Professor  Victoria Nourse of University of Wisconsin Law School, Professor Susan  Deller Ross of Georgetown University Law Center, and Professor Wendy  Webster Williams of Georgetown University Law Center.   Yale College  Professor Fred Strebeigh, author of the forthcoming book Equal: Women  Reshape American Law (Norton 2009), will deliver opening remarks.

Professor Kim is the Conference Chair.  It looks like a great program.
