Abstract:     
This Essay explores what considerations of gender could add to Professor John Inazu’s efforts to revitalize the freedom of assembly. The Essay appears as part of a symposium celebrating the publication of his book, Liberty’s Refuge: The Forgotten Freedom of Assembly, which critiques the Supreme Court’s development of the freedom of association and argues for recognition of a robust “right to exclude” under the First Amendment’s Assembly Clause.

Using a very rudimentary feminist lens, I examine three strands of Liberty’s Refuge: its treatment of the always-contested divide between public and private, its overly narrow reading of the Supreme Court’s intimate association doctrine, and its failure to distinguish exclusion from subordination. My analysis shows how, in overlooking several opportunities to take gender into account, the book risks leaving women as liberty’s forgotten refugees.
