FAIRLY EQUAL: Lawyering the Feminist Revolution:
Book talk with Linda Silver Dranoff at the Toronto Reference Library
Linda Silver Dranoff talks about her book Fairly Equal: Lawyering the Feminist Revolution, in which she delivers an eyewitness account of the revolution in women’s rights under the law, and her own trailblazing journey from pre-feminist times to the battlegrounds of the courts of law and the halls of power. In sharing what she has learned through her activism, including resistance by the patriarchy and how to handle it, she calls for vigilance and a renewed crusade for equality for women.
