“This book was made possible by the volume of original material recorded and collected over the last five years by the First 100 Years project. There is no archive like it to help women in law to place themselves in history. This book is an excellent physical gift to the legal profession and will continue to inspire future generations of women in the profession. Dana Denis-Smith, Founder, First 100 Years
