Rabenmutter and the Glass Ceiling: An Analysis of Role Conflict Experienced by Women Lawyers in Germany Compared with Women Lawy

Jacquelyn H. Slotkin

Can women lawyers do it all - practice law, maintain a satisfying marriage or partnership, and have a family? This article analyzes and compares women lawyers in Germany and the United States: their legal education, gender proportion in the legal profession, work opportunities, satisfaction with professional choices, and role conflicts. The author concludes with a cross-cultural analysis of role conflict and a call to restructure the legal environment in both countries to be inclusive and family-friendly - with the goal to find ways to promote and to retain female lawyers.
