28th Annual Rothgerber Conference: Women's Enfranchisement

The Byron R. White Center for the Study of American Constitutional Law will sponsor the 28th Annual Ira C. Rohgerber Conference, Women’s Enfranchisement: Beyond the 19th Amendment, on Friday, April 3, 2020.

This year marks the centennial of the 19th Amendment, formally extending suffrage to some, but not all, women. Barriers to political rights and inequality persist, particularly for women at the intersections of race, sex, and class.  The conference will use the centennial to take stock of how far we’ve come—and how far we have to go—in terms of formal political enfranchisement and the empowerment of women more broadly.

The panels are:

PANEL 1: “Historical Perspectives on the 19th Amendment: Looking Back, Looking Forward”

Carolyn Ramsey (Colorado Law), Julie Suk (CUNY), Mary Ziegler (FSU Law), Susan Schulten (University of Denver)

PANEL 2: “Barriers to Political Representation”

Dara Strolovitch (Princeton), Atiba Ellis (Marquette Law), Bertrall Ross (Berkeley Law), Justin Levitt (Loyola Law), Ming H. Chen (Colorado Law)

PANEL 3: “Lived Equality: Beyond Formal Political Rights”

Aya Gruber (Colorado Law), Chinyere Ezie (Center for Constitutional Rights), Diana Flynn (Lambda Legal), Cary Franklin (UTexas Law), Scott Skinner-Thompson (Colorado Law) 

The conference is free and approved for 6 general CLE credits.  Both breakfast and lunch will be served to attendees.  The Colorado Law Review will be publishing a special symposium issue to share the participants’ scholarly works.

You may register for the event here by Monday, March 30.

[Editorial Note: I spoke at the 2019 Conference, on universal injunctions; it is a great program]
