Women in the Courts: A Work in Progress 15 Years After the Report of the New York Task Force on Women in the Courts (June 2002)

"Taken as a whole [responses to a 2001 questionnaire] suggest that to those who spend their professional lives in New York's courts, change is visible everywhere but so is the persistence of troubling attitudes and harmful practices."

Equal Justice, Equal Treatment, Equal Opportunity: Appraising Change and Progress a Decade After the Report of the New York Task Force on Women in the Courts (May 1996) Not Available in electronic format

"This report sounds a consistent theme: impressive progress alongside persisting problems. . . Women in courthouses and the court system still find obstacles to the pursuit of their legal claims, careers and profession that men rarely confront."
