Stearns Weaver Miller Professor, College of Law, Florida State University

Mary Ziegler is the Stearns Weaver Miller Professor of Law at Florida State University College of Law, where she teaches courses in Family Law, Employment Law, Reproduction, Sexuality, and the Law, and Torts.

Her book, After Roe: The Lost History of the Abortion Debate, was published by Harvard University Press in June of 2015. The book uses more than 100 oral history interviews and extensive archival research to challenge the conventional legal and historical account of social-movement reactions to Roe v. Wade. In studying the decade after Roe, the project explores reasons for the contemporary polarization of the abortion wars.

She is the also author of twenty published or forthcoming articles that fall at the intersection of historical and legal scholarship. Her work focuses on reproductive health, gender, constitutional and family law, and law and social change.
