Stories from Trailblazing Women Lawyers

Jill Norgren (John Jay College of Criminal Justice), Stories from Trailblazing Women Lawyers: Lives in the Law (NYU Press 2018).

“This remarkable volume collects the life and career stories of a hundred female lawyers, all part of the so-called ‘second wave’ of the movement, this is the period after women gained suffrage and other full citizenship rights…. a vast collaborative effort of oral history taking and writing, now organized with an historian’s fine hand. It will be useful for years to all scholars of legal profession as a model and an inspiration.”
