Study Shows Judges With Daughters Side More With Women

ArgumentAccording to a new study from Harvard University, judges who have daughters for children more likely to vote in favor of women’s rights than ones with only sons. Professor Maya Sen states that “by having at least one daughter, judges learn about what it’s like to be a woman, perhaps a young woman, who might have to deal with issues like equity in terms of pay, university admissions or taking care of children.” This study could implicate how judges who have daughters make custody determinations in child custody cases, or in other areas of family law. Professor Sen observes that “Justices and judges aren’t machines. They are human, just like you and me. And just like you and me, they have personal experiences that affect how they view the world.” Rlkead more about the study here.
