The Initial Spark

Lady Lawyer is an expression that is often used by lawyers, mostly male, to refer to women in the legal profession.

More than ten years ago, while taking on women’s empowerment challenge, our Lady Lawyer started a journey, having in view the Universal Declaration of Human Rights proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris on 10 December 1948, in the spirit of Eleanor Roosevelt words – “Where, after all, do universal human rights begin?” “In small places, close to home” “the factory, farm, or office where he [she] works. Such are the places where every man, woman, and child seeks equal justice, equal opportunity, equal dignity without discrimination”.

Our Lady Lawyer met us there, sharing our dreams, our values, and helping us to achieve them, assert them and reach them.
