The relationship between Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sandra Day O’Connor transcends party, religion, region, and culture. Strengthened by each other’s presence, these groundbreaking judges were the first women to serve on the highest court in the land, transforming the Constitution and America itself, and making our country a more equal place for all women.

Join Linda R. Hirshman, author of the New York Times and Washington Post bestselling book, Sisters in Law: How Sandra Day O'Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg Went to the Supreme Court and Changed the World, as she shares revealing stories of how these trailblazers fought for their own recognition in a male-dominated profession — battles that would ultimately benefit every American woman.

The program will be moderated by Judge Ann Claire Williams (ret.), the first and only judge of color to sit on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and the third Black woman to serve on any federal circuit court. Judge Ann Claire Williams and Linda R. Hirshman will be introduced by Michael Gray, Executive Committee and Board Member, Illinois Holocaust Museum.
