When We Evaluate Judicial Nominations, Gender Equality Belongs On the Docket
Every day our state courts hear cases that have a major impact on the lives and rights of women and girls. As our state Supreme Court justices interpret our state laws and Constitution, they are responsible for establishing and enforcing rights and freedoms that apply to all of us. In future years NH state courts will likely be called upon to decide the scope and meaning of many crucial legal protections for women and girls, such as the right to privacy, to access education, to equal opportunities in the workplace, and to access a full range of reproductive health care, including safe, legal abortion.
