Walker Macon Attends Fowler School of Law’s Annual Law Review Symposium
On Friday, January 24, 2020, Law Clerk Walker Macon attended and assisted with the production of Chapman Law Review’s 22nd annual symposium. This year’s symposium surrounded the 100-year anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment — particularly the suffrage movement’s history, challenges to voting rights, and gender equality’s current state. Walker is currently a Senior Articles Editor assigned to an article, “The Continued Rise of the Reproductive Justice Lawyer.” The article is co-authored by two of this year’s “Challenges to Voting Rights” panelists: Leigh Creighton Bond of the Feminist Women’s Health Center, and attorney Monika Taliaferro. “Reproductive justice,” as defined by the article, is “the human right to maintain personal bodily autonomy, have children, not have children, and parent the children we have in safe and sustainable communities.” Walker will continue to work closely with the panelists during his editing process throughout the Spring semester. Chapman Law Review’s Spring 2020 issue is dedicated to this critical topic of the evolving effects of the 19th Amendment on American society and will feature the article.
