We are a coalition of women law students who have each been directly affected by gender violence in our personal and professional lives. Together, we are committed to continuing the dialogue around issues facing women in law school, and in the profession generally. Twenty years ago a female writer and advocate opined that law school was one of the most oppressive places for women. Not much has changed.
This blog was born out of shared experiences and concerns.
We are concerned about sexual assault on university campuses.
We are concerned about the culture of law school.
We are concerned about stereotypes in the criminal justice system.
We are concerned that assumptions about what “professionalism” means has been used to silence.
We know that your identity goes beyond your reproductive capacity.
This blog is not ours alone. We hope that you will read and share your story, not only for the blog, but for a project aimed at better understanding the experiences of women in law school.
Together, we are so much stronger.
