The “Me Too” Movement has forced corporations, and the entertainment industry as well as state and federal executive and legislative branch officials to take a hard look at gender inequities and sexual harassment in the workplace. But, how does our judicial system fare? Is the one branch of government charged with being fair and impartial in the interpretation and application of our laws truly fair and impartial?

This live webinar takes a looks at the real possibility of implicit gender bias in judicial opinion writing by deconstructing four recent Iowa Supreme Court ethics opinions written by an all male court wherein the victims were female clients and/or intimate partner of the male attorney/abuser. Not only do the case results themselves raise questions, but the language those results are wrapped in may be even more revealing.

Hon. Mary Pat Gunderson, District Court Judge (ret.)
