Her 2020 book, We the Women: The Unstoppable Mothers of the Equal Rights Amendment, is the first book to take up the ongoing controversy over reviving the ERA. Suk is an interdisciplinary and comparative legal scholar, researching equality at the intersection of law, history, sociology, and politics in the United States and globally. She has authored dozens of articles and book chapters about comparative constitutional law; the procedural implementation of equality norms in the United States and Europe; gender quotas; and women, work, and family. Her articles have appeared or are forthcoming in Columbia Law Review, Stanford Law Review, University of Chicago Law Review, and Georgetown Law Journal, among others.

She is a frequent commentator in the media on legal issues affecting women, including most recently on Sorry Not Sorry with Alyssa Milano, Ms. Magazine, L.A. Times, Boston Review, Democracy: A Journal of Ideas, and Washington Post.
