Faculty Book: Cynthia Fuchs Epstein

Cynthia Fuchs Epstein

Women in Law, 30th anniversary edition
(Quid Pro, 2012)

Deemed pathbreaking, original, and provocative since its first edition was published three decades ago, Women in Law continues to provide a sociological and historical analysis of the overt and subtle ceilings placed on women in the legal profession in their various roles. With a new foreword by Stanford’s Deborah Rhode, the thirtieth anniversary edition of this classic book includes countless revealing interviews, war stories, and inside glimpses of the many professional roles that women inhabit: lawyers, judges, professors, leaders, and backroom staff members. It also brings vividly to life the candid—and sometimes unseemly—assessments by male lawyers and judges about the changes to the profession ushered in by the swell of women members in the lawyers’ club. Epstein is distinguished professor of sociology at the Graduate Center.
