The Supreme Court of the United States is not known as a bastion of feminism. With only four female justices in its history, it can hardly even be considered an equitably staffed institution. However, for centuries, women have had to look to the Supreme Court to protect and define their rights - right to work, right to equal treatment, right to reproductive freedom. While the Court has been articulating women's rights, it has failed at using the language of feminism, the language of women, to define and support them.
