In recognition of Women's History Month, the Toledo Women's Bar Association will be hosting an evening devoted to the history of women in the legal profession. The program will include a screening of the film Balancing the Scales followed by a panel discussion composed of the film's producer, Sharon Rowen, Esq. , Chief Judge Denise Page Hood, (U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of Michigan), and Justice Judith Ann Lanzinger (Retired, Ohio Supreme Court). The event will conclude with a reception in honor of the Toledo Women Lawyers History Project. Online registration is available here.
COMING SOON: Donate to the Toledo Women Lawyers History Project
The Toledo Women Lawyers History Project, a joint effort by the Toledo Women’s Bar Association (TWBA) and the University of Toledo, College of Law, seeks to discover and preserve the stories of women lawyers in the Toledo area. Portraits depicting 12 “pioneers” created by Paula Mowry ’88, a College of Law graduate and artist, will be permanently displayed on the second floor of the LaValley Law Library. Once we finalize the links, you will be able to donate to this worthy project!
