Harvard Journal of Law and Gender Hosts Annual Fall Conference on ‘Gender and the Body’
…Another panel, moderated by former HLS Dean Martha L. Minow, centered around domestic violence and gun violence in the context of the upcoming Supreme Court case United States v. Rahimi. In that case, the Supreme Court will decide whether, according to the Second Amendment, the government can deny guns to those under a domestic violence restraining order.
The panel’s speakers included Diane L. Rosenfeld, the founding director of the Law School’s Gender Violence Program; Marianna J. Yang, a clinical instructor at the Family Justice Clinic of the WilmerHale Legal Services Center; and Brown University associate professor Elizabeth Tobin-Tyler.
