Today, we are talking about a topic near and dear to our hearts, being a woman in the legal profession. It's 2016, are we really still having this same tired conversation about women in the workplace? Yes, yes we are.

In this episode we discuss:

  • What is it really like to be a woman in the legal workforce?
  • Why is it so hard to be a woman in the legal profession?
  • Lee and Alison share their experience as lawyers, and from other jobs
  • What is the "Martha Stewart" complex and why is it dangerous for women?
  • Dealing with the lack of sponsorship for female lawyers
  • How motherhood fits into your career as a lawyer
  • Why are we not openly discussing the challenges of pregnancy and motherhood in the legal profession? 
  • Where can we go from here?
