Whether you’re a lawyer, wannabe lawyer or just interested in the subject I can highly recommend the brilliant series of @first100years and @ddenissmith - stories of women in law. What a difference it would have made to my generation where the motto was regardless of the barriers “you just had to get on with it”.
Dorothy’s advice for young female lawyers today? “Have a thick skin. Keep calm, and be good at your job. Don’t be too reticent, and you mustn’t worry that people are going to criticise you if you open your mouth. You’ve got to be prepared to speak your mind.”
