About the Book
The Woman Advocate is by women advocates for woman advocates. It contains first-hand accounts by successful women lawyers of their experiences at all stages of career development. In the four parts of the book --- Where We Are; How We Got There; What Our Environment Is Like; and Where We're Going --- the contributors provide reflections, advice, guidance, and, of course, "war stories" in lively, entertaining and insightful prose. From the perception of women and its effect on their ability to succeed, to building a book of business, to choosing a career path, and to looking at what lies ahead, The Woman Advocate will help you improve your skills and gain greater control over your professional life.
What Others are Saying
"This is an essential book for all women advocates, whether they are still in law school, just starting out, at the height of their careers, or winding down. There is much to learn from the personal stories each chapter presents, and much to inspire women advocates to even greater heights."
JoAnne A. Epps Dean, Temple University Beasley School of Law Philadelphia, PA
"What a great update to the original The Woman Advocate. The second edition is a must-read that addresses issues faced by women lawyers at every level of their practices. It dispenses practical advice from many perspectives on issues from selecting the right place to work to gaining influence in the workplace. This should be required reading for managing partners."
Kim J. Askew Partner, K&L Gates Dallas, TX Former Chair, Section of Litigation
"The stories will inspire you. The practical advice to be gleaned from its pages will serve you well. The personal disclosures by women of substance will delight and may surprise you. The Woman Advocate should be at the top of your reading list for every woman lawyer, for every career woman in any field, and for the men who love them."
Laurel G. Bellows Principal, The Bellows Law Group P.C. Chicago, IL Former Chair of the ABA House of Delegates
"The Woman Advocate should be on every career woman's book shelf. The book is a compendium of insightful, often touching, sometimes funny first-hand accounts by accomplished women lawyers who've been there and done that. The stories provide guideposts for women at every stage of their careers. It's a pleasure to read and a resource worth having."
