So amazing to read that it is exactly 100 years ago since women were first allowed to enter the legal profession.
The resolution was seconded by someone who said that "If women proved themselves to be as good at business as men, they would succeed; if not, they would fail". I think the past 100 years, and the number of women successfully entering the law, speak for themselves!
xactly 100 years ago today, a special general meeting of the Law Society Council met 'as a matter of urgency' to consider the implications of the Barristers and Solicitors (Qualification of Women) Bill. The urgency was of course the need for the Society to reform its long-standing opposition to the admission of women in the face of a looming change in the law.
