On equal footing with our male colleagues, women lawyers can pursue career and professional development opportunities without hesitation. We can feel empowered to advance our careers without fear of crossing boundaries that have previously stood in the way. In addition, if women lawyers do not have to fight the equality fight, they are more likely to support and encourage each other. I am thankful for my law firm and organizations like DWLA that support women lawyers as equals in our profession.
