In the last two and half years, President Trump and the Republican-controlled Senate have systematically stacked the federal courts with judges who are hostile to reproductive rights, LGBTQ rights, and other civil rights, effectively remaking the judiciary to support their discriminatory agenda. In just 32 months, the Senate has confirmed over 150 federal district and appellate judges. As of October 2019, President Trump has gotten 43 circuit court nominees confirmed, which is the fastest pace for confirming circuit level judges of the last six presidents. While the Trump Administration and its allies launch unprecedented attacks on the rights of women and others who face discrimination, Trump is also nominating extreme judges with records hostile to these very rights. Trump’s redrawing of the court system—from the district court level all the way to the Supreme Court—will shape the fight for gender justice for decades to come.
