Join four renowned political scientists for the launch of their book, Reimagining the Judiciary. This work examines the factors that facilitate the inclusion of women on high courts, while recognizing that many courts have a long way to go before reaching gender parity.

The authors built the first cross-national and longitudinal dataset on the appointment of women and men to high courts and showcased five in-depth case studies on the selection of justices to high courts in Canada, Colombia, Ireland, South Africa, and the US.
