Arabella Mansfield was the first woman in the United States to join the ranks as a lawyer in 1869. Since then, women have made great strides taking over court rooms as judges and lawyers all over the country. We are still the minority, but we're making progress and we have the interviews to prove it. First up, Monica talks with Cheryl Kleiman, Esq., a civil rights lawyer who has a lot to say about equality, access, and educational equity.
Next up, Marita sits down with Maria McLaughlin, a judge in the court of common pleas in Philadelphia who is in the midst of a campaign, running for superior court of Pennsylvania. Thoughts? Email us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
