The #SistersInLaw come together to analyze the involuntary manslaughter charges facing Alec Baldwin stemming from the shooting on the Rust set, and how gun enhancements have a role. Then they look at how the SCOTUS search for the Dobbs leaker has been handled and it’s relative weaknesses before diving into the case Elon’s shareholders have against him stemming from his reckless actions.

From The #Sisters This Week:
Support The ERA:
Flood President Biden’s office and that of Jennifer Klein, head of the White House Gender Policy Council, with emails, letters, and phone calls. Or Click here to send a note: LINK: White House.
Contact your Congressional Representatives and U.S. Senators and ask them to take action to persuade President Biden to do this or to make sure that Congress passes a resolution like the ones Representatives Speier and Maloney sponsored in the last Congress or the one Senator Cardin is now sponsoring.
Write letters to the editor or opinion pieces - and share them. You can also share this piece and the posts of ERA advocates on social media. LINKS
Join groups actively advocating for the ERA - such as Vote Equality, the ERA Coalition, NOW, AAUW, Zonta, and the League of Women Voters.
Ask your State legislatures to pass resolutions like the one in the Illinois General Assembly filed by State Rep Jennifer Gong-Gershowitz. It affirms the ERA and asks the various branches of the national government to take action to do the same.
Jill’s Cauliflower Soup Recipe:
EASY CAULIFLOWER SOUP
1 head cauliflower, about 2 lbs.
Unsalted butter (optional, recommended) - you can sub olive oil or a high quality vegan butter like Earth Balance, if you like
OPTIONAL TOPPING IDEAS:
Drizzle of olive oil or sesame oil, crumbled blue cheese, parmesan, za'atar
YOU WILL ALSO NEED:
Medium saucepan, blender
Total Time: 10 Minutes
Servings: 4 servings
Kosher Key: Pareve or Dairy
Remove the leaves and tough core from the cauliflower. Chop into small florets and carefully clean them.
In a medium saucepan, bring 1 quart (4 cups) of water to a boil. Stir in 2 tsp of salt till dissolved. Pour in the cauliflower florets. Bring the water back to a boil and cover. Let the cauliflower cook for about 5 minutes till very soft and tender.
Remove the florets from their cooking water using a slotted spoon; reserve the salted cooking water.
Place the cooked cauliflower into a blender, filling it halfway. Carefully pour in cooking water, adding till it reaches about halfway up the cooked cauliflower.
Cover the blender carefully and blend, scraping the sides as needed, until the soup becomes a smooth puree. You may need to add more cooking water to achieve a soup-like texture. The longer you blend, the more silky and smooth the soup becomes. Add salt, pepper, and butter to taste. I use about 1 tbsp butter (or I’ve used up to 2 Tbsp) for a whole head of cauliflower (1/2 tbsp per batch). Salt is your friend here, if the soup is tasting bland don't be afraid to add more. You can also add some good quality olive oil or Earth Balance instead of butter if you'd like a richer flavor without dairy. Also add ground fennel.
Repeat process with the remaining batch of cauliflower. Serve soup hot. Leftovers will keep for 1-2 days in a covered tupperware container; soup will need to be stirred after reheating.

That moment with Kim’s husband breaking news was AMAZING
I love your show. I impatiently wait every week for it to drop! I have a question... I've been so excited that Georgia was pursuing Trump because a republican president couldn't pardon him. it hit me that a republican governor could pardon his STATE crimes. 🤷.. I'd love to be wrong.
YES!!!! ERA ERA so weary of waiting.. how do we help a local level?
I LOVE this podcast! I'm definitely a political junkie and have come to know each one of these amazing women via the political shows I watch. They are brilliant, each in her own way, and able to bring complicated ideas to the layperson (me) for understanding the world around me. I get on Castbox daily and I'll admit, I pop over to see if a new episode dropped while I wasn't looking! "Fine, it's only been four days.... but maaaybe there's an emergency one....". So, I checked already today 🙃, two more days...
Thank you all for sharing your thoughts, expertise and experience. I’m exhausted by the lawlessness of Donald & his cronies.
Wasn't BG detained before Russia and Ukraine war?

The University of Houston Law Center does exist.
Kim, I understand how you feel about the lack of mask wearers outside. My daughter and her friend went out to the mall for the first time in a ling time. They were both vaccinated and boosted, however, they had to eat as they were celebrating one's 16th birthday. The noted that noone is wearing masks and they both got covid as a result. WEAR MASkS FOR YOU AND YOUR NEIGHBOR!
How interesting Kim. You mentioned in previous podcast of being Pro Life. So now are you saying otherwise because it could affect your marriage?
Being that what was done is an opinion, can we get rid of it and how?
lntersting that Thomas doesn't mention Loving Vs. Virginia.
I don't want my tax dollars paying for church school!!
Clarence Thomas needs to remember, in that Constitution, he isn't even mentioned. It was only for rich, land owning, WHITE MEN!!
So amazing to hear clear and prescient commentary on so many topics. Am truly a fan of the discussion, as only lawyers can do, that addresses both sides, no matter how personal, without getting personal. well done as always
Excuse me Jill. Isreal practices Apartheid EVERY DAY!!
Thank God Macron won. It gives me hope!
thank you ladies ❤
