Traditionally, all industries are influenced by men, but over the last few years, women have been a sport in every industry, including the legal world. Women are setting an example for future generations so that they can step into the legal industry. Many big names are already an example for the legal industry to women and more.
There are numerous achievements in every industry by women but the most significant to mention is the number of females appointed to high-ranking positions. If we talk of the US, ⅓ of federal judgeships are under women. These also include positions on the supreme court. These women have made history as they are the first ones to be appointed to such positions. It shows knowledge, dedication, and honesty.
Have you heard about Ruth Bader Ginsburg? She was appointed to the supreme court in 1993 and her death only made her stop working in 2020. Throughout her career, she had a fight with the world for women’s empowerment and gender equality making her a role model for women in the global legal industry.
Let’s know one more woman from the same industry who has larger heights. She is known in recent history and her name is Kamala Harris. Before she was the vice president of the United States, she served the country as the attorney general of California and as a United States Senator. She fights for the rights of women, children, and minorities. She has given a major part of her life for justice and equality for all.
It is not just the United States of America where women are standing out of the league, other countries like India also have great examples. Indira Jaising is a renowned human rights lawyer. She worked for this stream for over 40 years. She has worked for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and every type of gender-based violence.
Women are setting examples across the global business scene. The accomplishments should be celebrated. These women have so many obstacles and broken barriers but, they proved themselves. They have led future generations of female lawyers and judges to succeed. They have fought for justice, equality, and human rights, and their impact will be felt for years to come.
