We have been working with Professor Suzanne Kim, the Kinoy-Stavis Public Interest Law Fellows, the Women’s Law Forum, and other organizations and coalitions to plan for our Symposium, which will be held on Friday, September 25, from 8:30 AM to 6 PM.

The Symposium is titled: “Rutgers Celebrates Beijing + 20: Gender Equality on the Twentieth Anniversary of the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women.” This day-long event, which features activist Gloria Steinem as a keynote speaker, will bring together leading policymakers, advocates, and practitioners to discuss continued challenges in achieving gender equality since the groundbreaking Beijing Conference in 1995. Speakers will address a variety of areas from the Beijing Platform for Action, including violence, poverty, education, reproductive rights, and human rights. The conference proceedings will be published in a special symposium issue of WRLR.

The Symposium is also the inaugural event of the Rutgers Center for Gender and Sexuality Law and Policy, which supports interdisciplinary research, programming, and cross-sector partnerships enhancing gender- and sexuality- based equity.

The Women’s Rights Law Reporter is a quarterly journal of legal scholarship and feminist criticism published by students at the Rutgers School of Law in Newark.

Founded in 1970 by now-Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and feminist activists, legal workers, and law students and first published independently in New York City, the Reporter moved to Rutgers in 1972 and became formally affiliated with the law school in 1974. It is the oldest legal periodical in the United States focusing exclusively on the field of women’s rights law.

The Reporter examines legislative developments, significant federal and state court cases, judicial doctrines, litigation strategies, and the lives and careers of prominent women jurists, the legal profession, and other areas of the law or public policy relating to women’s rights.
