March is Women’s History Month, marking the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day. Come in and see our new books display that features books on women and the law. Topics cover domestic violence and international law, laws regulating women’s economic opportunities, gender equity, family law, prostitution, women’s property rights and the effects of globalization on women’s rights.
In addition, we have several books about Belva Lockwood, a graduate of the National College of Law, now known as GW Law, and the first woman admitted to practice before the Supreme Court in 1879. You can read more about her struggles and ambitions in Belva Lockwood: The woman Who Would Be President, by Jill Norgren, and other books in our collection.
