The Gazette has a new page on its website. ‘Women in the Law’ is home to history, profiles, opinion and news. The first history article, by Parliament’s senior archivist Mari Takayanago, follows the Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act to royal assent on 23 December 1919. Others will follow, including accounts of the professional lives of the early ‘trailblazer’ women lawyers.
Comment and opinion on women in the law includes reflections on the role of feminism in taking instructions, the role of men in achieving equality and watershed legal moments that improved LGBT+ equality. Also covered in news and analysis is last week’s Law Society research report Women in Leadership in Law. News and comment on gender pay gap data will appear there as firms publish figures.
Women in the Law includes specially commissioned content as well as news and features appearing elsewhere in the Gazette. To contribute articles or ideas for the page, email the commissioning editor Eduardo Reyes: firstname.lastname@example.org.
