On July 26, 2011, in Chautauqua Institution's Hall of Philosophy, Professor John Q. Barrett (St. John's University School of Law) introduced Slate editor and Supreme Court reporter Dahlia Lithwick, who then delivered Chautauqua's 7th annual Robert H. Jackson Lecture on the Supreme Court of the United States. Her topic was "How Women Are Changing the U.S. Supreme Court." In these excerpts, Barrett covers: (1) the date, the 65th anniversary of Jackson's closing argument at Nuremberg; (2) the women, including professional colleagues, who were important parts of Jackson's life (his wife Irene; his daughter Mary; his professional secretaries Mellicent Pike, Grace Stewart, Ruth Sternberg and Elsie Douglas; and his Nuremberg assistant Katherine Fite) (3) his 1941-54 service on an all-male Supreme Court; (4) the new, mutiple female-justice Courts created by the appointments of Justices Sonia Sotomayor (2009) and Elena Kagan (2010); and (5) Dahlia Lithwick's significance as a Supreme Court reporter.
