Women in the Legal Profession from the 1920s to the 1970s: What Can We Learn from Their Experence about Law and Social Change?

 

Abstract:  From the history of women’s entry into the legal profession from 1920s to the 1970s, we can find that women are gradually accepted by the legal profession. the  stories of three women Amy Ruth Mahin, Dawn Clark and Virginia  Watkin, their experiences at a single prominent law firm, Covington & Burling, proved this point. This special experience of women in the legal profession tells us: reawakening of the  women's movement, the rise of feminist legislation, economic changes in the legal  profession itself and broader social change have been keys to women's success or necessities of it, intergenerational connections among women are centrally important to social  change with respect to women's rights, building relationships with supportive  men also contribute to women’s success.
