March is Women's History Month, and tomorrow is International Women's Day, but apparently law firms have not gotten the memo. Many take this time to celebrate the achievements of women, and while we share those sentiments, we have some news that may cast us as a Debbie Downer.
National Association of Women Lawyers
The National Association of Women Lawyers ("NAWL") is an organization "devoted to the interests of women lawyers and women's rights" and is "the voice of women in law®." Established in 1899, NAWL has grown to encompass much more than education, and now is responsible for several programs, events and reports. Last week, NAWL released its Report of the Eighth Annual NAWL National Survey on Retention and Promotion of Women in Law Firms.
