About the Program

As Sarah Grimke once said: “But I ask no favors for my sex...All I ask of our brethren is, that they will take their feet from off our necks, and permit us to stand upright....” In honor of the 19th Amendment Centennial, where women were granted the right to vote, the Diversity & Inclusion Committee and the Women in the Law Section present a moderated intimate conversation about women and diversity in the legal profession over several decades.
