This article for the New Republic, drawn from Part 5 of Equal, narrates the collaboration of Joe Biden with women activists and women judges to shape the Violence Against Women Act of 1994 and then to contend against fierce and mostly male resistance in Washington, particularly from the Supreme Court.
Fred Strebeigh, "Standard Bearer: Long before she joined the Supreme Court, Ruth Bader Ginsburg challenged its members to treat gender like race," Legal Affairs, September-October, 2003.
This article about the work of Ruth Bader Ginsburg was adapted by Legal Affairs from early chapters of Equal: Women Reshape American Law. Much of the information for both this article and Part 1 of Equal came thanks to the generosity of Justice Ginsburg, who allowed me to work in her files of early letters and litigation. I tell that story partly in the acknowledgments section of the book (excerpted in the acknowledgments section of these web pages.
A note on this website for Equal: Women Reshape American Law
As of May 2012, Microsoft has ended its long-running website service called Microsoft Office Live, on which I built this site, www.EqualWomen.com. I am now rebuilding the site on a new website service, but for a while this site may remain in progress.
Many apologies, Fred Strebeigh
