The Woman’s Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote by Elaine Weiss

Reviewed by Judge Mary-Margaret Anderson (Ret.)

When I attended law school in the mid-1970s, it was still a very unusual path for a woman to take. And for several years after graduation, I was reminded of that fact often. Some 40 years later, much has changed for women, especially for the lucky ones admitted to the professions, and yet so much has not. Perhaps shielded by my status as a lawyer, and definitely treated differently while a judicial officer, I was taken by surprise by the facts and behaviors revealed by the #MeToo movement. I assumed much greater change had occurred in the working world. Although I knew discrimination continued, I thought that the major battles had been won years ago.
