when pigs fly … expect the unbelievable

Archive for May 18th, 2009

I picked up a book at an airport — The Supremes’ Greatest Hits:  The 34 Supreme Court Cases that Most Directly Affect Your Life.  Now, being a lawyer, I am not sure I precisely agree with the selection that Michael G. Trachtman, the author, made and I have some questions about his quick analysis of these 34 cases.  But his premise is great and overall it’s a very well-done book.

In looking through the book, there were several cases that spoke to me because of their impact on women, and I thought that these are things that should be shared.  Here is the top 5  list I took from Trachtman’s 34:

The WPF List of the Top 5 Cases Which Impact Women (of Trachtman’s List of 34)

Boy Scouts of American v. Dale (2000)

Griswold v. Connecticut (1965)

Roe v. Wade (1973)

Burlington Industries v. Ellerth (1998)

Bush v. Gore (2000)

Look at that list.  Do you know the impact of each of these cases on your life as a woman? 

Why don’t you jot down what you think and then tune in during the rest of the week to see if you’re right?
