This article is more than 9 years old.

Here’s a question that gets to the heart of how our legal system works: Can a passionate civil rights advocate, an ardent feminist and high profile criminal defense lawyer who made no secret of her liberal views, become a fair and affective federal judge? Judge Nancy Gertner says the answer is yes.

Gertner spoke with Radio Boston's Anthony Brooks about her book, "In Defense of Women" in May.

This segment aired on September 5, 2011.
