Women in the Life and Law of the DC Circuit Courts

Just up on the website of the Historical Society of the DC Circuit is a video of  Women in the Life and Law of the DC Circuit Courts, a program the Society sponsored in June.  The website explains:
Led by the moderator, Professor Barbara Babcock,  panelists Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Judge Gladys Kessler, Judge  Royce Lamberth, Nancy Mayer-Whittington, Michele Roberts, Judge Patricia Wald, and Helgi Walker assessed the role of women in the life and law of the Courts.  In so doing, they described their professional and personal experiences while providing insights into the participation of women in the Courts of the Circuit, hurdles encountered and remaining, and the impact of women participating in increasing numbers in the judicial process.
