The First Women Lawyers Book Summary/Review:

This comparative study explores the lives of some of the women who first initiated challenges to male exclusivity in the legal professions in the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. Their challenges took place at a time of considerable optimism about progressive societal change, including new and expanding opportunities for women, as well as a variety of proposals for reforming law, legal education, and standards of legal professionalism. By situating women's claims for admission to the bar within this reformist context in different jurisdictions, the study examines the intersection of historical ideas about gender and about legal professionalism at the turn of the twentieth century. In exploring these systemic issues, the study also provides detailed examinations of the lives of some of the first women lawyers in six jurisdictions: the United States, Canada, Britain, New Zealand and Australia, India, and western Europe. In exploring how individual women adopted different legal arguments in litigated cases, or devised particular strategies to overcome barriers to professional work, the study assesses how shifting and contested ideas about gender and about legal professionalism shaped women's opportunities and choices, as well as both support for and opposition to their claims. As a comparative study of the first women lawyers in several different jurisdictions, the book reveals how a number of quite different women engaged with ideas of gender and legal professionalism at the turn of the twentieth century.

This book looks at how and why women were employed, and in what ways society’s attitudes towards women workers did or did not change during the

Without darker skin, humanity would have died out already 2.1 million years ago. And who would have guessed that Homo erectus had the ingenious skill to invent language and even the first abstract sign. Skills that reflect his incredible will to survive, which our African ancestresses and ancestors inherited from him. Because when the most devastating natural disaster in history veiled the sky red, they were on the verge of extinction. But instead of giving up, they were the firsts on

God reminds woman that His delay does not mean denials; it means development. God's provision had already been set for both women of
