LDAD is proud to share information about an upcoming book edited by our executive director, Lauren Stiller Rikleen, entitled: Her Honor –Stories of Challenge and Triumph from Women Judges. The book contains nuanced, personal stories by and about some of the nation’s most respected women judges.

Her Honor embodies LDAD’s core principle - defending the underlying constitutional values on which our democracy depends, including the integrity of our justice system. The book demonstrates how the best of our judges share both an abiding reverence for the law and a passion for ensuring a fair system of justice without a political agenda, respecting precedent but acting with courage if the law offers a way forward.

All the judges in this book have lived lives of deep influence. The stories shared will extend that influence further and inspire future generations to persevere in their careers during even the most difficult times.

We also urge you to read the latest in our ongoing feature, Democracy Threats. This month's post shows that attacks on democracy, such as what occurred on January 6, dangerously reverberate in a globally connected world.

Very soon, we will be further reporting on an important project that we have been developing with a non-profit partner.
