Hillary Clinton, Respectability Politics, and the Crisis of Modern Feminism

The results of the 2016 U.S. Presidential election represented a failure on many fronts. It was a failure of the American commitment to diversity, openness, and refuge. It was a failure as a check on corporate greed, wealthy interests, and predators of the poor and vulnerable. It signified a societal sickness— with our obsession with celebrity culture and worshipping of money as status. It displayed a majoritarian callousness to the calls for equal dignity by marginalized groups – by racial and ethnic minorities, the transgender community, immigrants, religious minorities, the gay and lesbian community, the disabled community, and women –…

What Every Female Attorney Should Have in Her Wardrobe

Considering how busy your schedule is as an attorney, there are surely times when you face your closet, and then disappointment comes next. How many times did you open your closet and said, “I don’t have anything to wear,” to yourself? How many times have you stated that you need something “new” to wear? That means what you have is an inoperational wardrobe and seriously, you need to change that. But how will you know which ones to replace and what items you should keep? Like a simple or basic white tee, or your blue pair of jeans, or how…

He(ar)(re), us! Blawg writing as illumination & organization

haiku: I write. Without it I would self-destruct. Breathing can be elusive. As a young associate I attended a meeting where I was only one of two women and the only woman of color among nearly twenty attorneys. We women were not shrinking violets in the back reserving our opinions and sitting on our hands: we were at the table, very vocal, leaning in long before Sheryl instructed us to. A few days later, I ran into one of the attorneys who were at the meeting. He rushed to tell me about this fantastic meeting he attended where there were…

LAW AND DESTINY

The laws of physics create order over the world, gravity limits the boundaries of our planet and daily human capacity. Society, in contravention of the laws of science, is inherently random and exhibits chaos. Where in this great cosmic mix does one find the rule of law? Some people become lawyers because they want to make money, others join the Bar because they seek power. Justice? On the first day of my law school classes Prof Sam Dash pronounced words to the effect of: if you are interested in fairness and justice there is a door in this room and…

I did and I did, but I recall that it was as much a question of stamina and personal discipline as much as it was about legal information and knowledge of law. The old adage that Law School has nothing to do with practicing law has, years later, proven to be untrue. Staying awake and using my…

My Mom works as an International Legal Diplomat (Happy Mother’s Day)

The questions of worklife balance are one facet of professional life among MsJD members that are universal--- important no matter in which nation one finds work or which part of one's family needs and deserves full attention at some moment in time. For those of us living life on the cutting edge of law and technology and governance, well sometimes at the cutting edge, one simply gets cut and bleeds. Social values have changed; it is now possible to view mothering and paid work as inextricable tasks, benefiting children as well as parents and thus supporting a healthier society. But…
