In the second episode of Notorious, we discuss the 1996 case of United States v. Virginia, also known as the VMI case. This case, like Reed v. Reed from Episode 1, addressed the issue of gender equality under the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. The majority opinion, written by Justice Ginsburg, reviewed the policy under a heightened scrutiny judicial standard and struck down the all-male admissions policy at the Virginia Military Institute (“VMI”).

Galen Sherwin, an attorney with the Women’s Rights Project (aka “The House that Ruth Built”) of the American Civil Liberties Union, along with Patterson Belknap attorneys Michelle Bufano, Justin Zaremby and Gabriela Bersuder, discuss issues of the history of gender equality, heightened judicial scrutiny, Justice Scalia, and the continued applicability of the VMI case to the ACLU’s current work.
