Would a Justice Jackson be clearly heard on the male-dominated court?
“Let me finish my point!” cried Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor when an advocate, Bert W. Rein, interrupted her for the umpteenth time against the court’s rules. “I am speaking!” protested Kamala D. Harris when Mike Pence talked over her during a vice-presidential debate. However authoritative a woman is, she is still disproportionately likely to be interrupted by a man, even one more junior than she. So how will Ketanji Brown Jackson fare if her nomination is confirmed? How much voice will she have?
