To ensure a strong and equal future for all women in the legal profession we need to raise awareness about their history and inspire the future generations of female lawyers.
The film "On The Basis Of Sex" does just that. On Wednesday 6 March we were joined by clients and contacts for a private screening of the film. It's the true story Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her historic career as she fought for equal rights which lead to her to becoming the second woman ever to be appointed US Supreme Court justice.
Inspirational women in law
As a firm we are surrounded by many inspirational and hardworking females.
Throughout this year we want to celebrate their journeys and the journey of other women in industry, from 1919 to the present day.
To start celebrate international women's day in this special year, we'd like to share a few of our own stories...
Jane Amphlett, Employment Partner
I have always worked hard, sought to challenge myself and taken opportunities where they have presented themselves.
Alex Carr, Senior Associate
I used to 'put on' court room dramas as a child and place myself as the Judge, so I clearly had an interest in justice from an early age.
Rianna Stevens, Executive Assistant
Always be yourself and trust your instinct. This will establish your own identity and ensure you are paving a happy career path for yourself.
Julia Wookey, Associate
On the first and third Saturday of every month, Toynbee Hall runs a women only free legal advice clinic which we support.
