South Carolina Women Lawyers Association - June President’s Message

June 8, 2015 Re:      Are We Having Fun, Yet? “Midlife,” they say, “is where fun goes to die.”  Really?  Well, not if I have anything to do with it. Dr. Marguerite here, with your “RX” for June:  Have more fun!  Sing, dance, drive a go-kart.  Have two big laughs tonight and call me in the morning. It turns out that fun and games are good for you.  When women get out and “play,” they cope better with stress, which sets up protective mechanisms that contribute to health and wellbeing.  Apparently, when it comes to stress prevention, fun and play can create a suit of armor. I do not…

South Carolina Women Lawyers Association - March President’s Message

#Iwilltry, #InternationalWomensDay Sunday, March 8 is International Women's Day. Founded in the early 1900s to rally against injustices to women, International Women's Day focuses today on celebrating recent advances of women around the globe. March 8, as fate would have it, is also my birthday. I was named after my grandmother, Marguerite. On my 16th birthday, my grandmother gave me a ring that belonged to her mother. It was a simple gold band engraved with three words: I will try. As she handed me this gift, my grandmother said, Words to live by. And so, I have tried. I will…

South Carolina Women Lawyers Association - February President’s Message

Happy Valentine's Day Last week, I was in a craft store looking for Valentine's Day decorations. As I walked through the picture section, I saw a poster that read, "Let her sleep. When she wakes, she will move mountains." I stood quietly for a while, just thinking. Young or old, thick or thin, tall or short, all of us have accomplished amazing things in our lives. All of us, some despite great odds, have graduated from law school and passed bar exams. All of us have been blessed with strength, intelligence and ambition. But some of us, I might say…
