On April 28-30, 2000, Yale Law School proudly hosted a working conference entitled Women, Justice, and Authority. A new century seemed an appropriate marker to reassess the progress of women and the law, as well as that of women in the law. Drawing together a remarkable number of feminist scholars (both male and female), the conference panels examined many different interactions between women, justice, and authority: feminist theories of justice; historical movements; transnational feminist organizing; the rise of women in roles of judging and governance; and the impact of constitutional provisions of equality, among other topics. It also provided intellectual space for reimagining, and continuing to imagine, what "women's justice" might look like-in the courtroom, in the work of public interest advocates, in the pages of literature, in everyday life.
