Women’s History Month

Posted By Administration, Thursday, March 5, 2020

 

By Michael Lee              2020 SCCBA President

 

March is Women’s History Month. It started in Santa Rosa, California as Women’s History Week in 1978. The organizers chose the week of March 8th to correspond with International Women’s Day.1 We in the Bay Area are a part of a rich history of spear-heading diversity in our community with results that have had ripple effects across the nation. Santa Clara’s corporations have featured woman leaders like Sheryl Sandberg, Meg Whitman, and Carly Fiorina. Our own Laurie Smith is the first female Sheriff in the history of California, first elected into office in 1998.2

 

As you know, there is still a long way to go and much more work to be done. Opportunities to get involved are right at your door-step. Please be a part of this rich history. Our county is sponsoring a Women’s Equality 2020 Leadership Counsel with meetings throughout the county all year long.3

 

Additionally, the SCCBA’s Women Lawyer’s group is one of the most active parts of our organization. It is vital and vibrant. Please consider joining the Women Lawyers today. Be a part of a group that supports each other and supports women throughout the legal field.
