The Constitution doesn’t say anything about sex – though the Declaration of Independence promoted the pursuit of happiness – but for the past hundred years or so, courts have been in our bedrooms. Law Professor Geoffrey Stone has the low-down. One hundred years after women won the right to vote, professor Brooke Kroeger reveals the role that men – or “suffragents” – played in the movement. And commentator Alexi McCammond of Axios talks with Peter Ogburn on the Bill Press Show about the friction between Trump and Congress.

Geoffrey Stone

For most of history, society had no problem with contraception, abortion, or obscenity … until state legislatures and courts became obsessed with sex. Professor Geoffrey Stone says it was because of the evangelical movement.

 

Brooke Kroeger

One hundred years ago… it was the pillars of New York society – men of industry, law, and letters – who marched for and helped win women’s right to vote. Professor Brooke Kroeger tells the story of the “suffragents.”
