Wagner Reese Proudly Supports IndyBar Women in Law Division's Centennial Celebration Kick-Off
2020 marks the centennial anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment – a landmark victory for the brave activists who fought for women’s voting rights. Looking back on this historic event after 100 years, the IndyBar Women and The Law Division (WLD) is hosting a Centennial Celebration Kick-Off event entitled: “Have We Come a Long Way, Baby?” from 4:00 to 5:00 pm in Courtroom 216 of the Birch Bayh Federal Building and United States Courthouse.
Dr. Laura Merrifield Wilson from the University of Indianapolis will be the main speaker for this event and will explore different perspectives on the following question: Did the vote provide women with full participation in American society, and if not, why? The program will also explore the history of women in Indiana State government, as well as the changing trends and expectations for women in national politics.
As a committed advocate for the IndyBar WLD, Wagner Reese is proud to be a sponsor for this important and historic event. The seminar will count as 1.00 NLS credit with the Indiana Commission for Continuing Legal Education. Event rates will vary depending on whether you are an IndyBar Member, a student, or a guest, but all are welcome to participate.
Supporting Women in Government
Here in Indiana, there are still many areas where women are underrepresented in both politics and the law, and our state is one of five that has never had a female senator or governor in office. At Wagner Reese, we recognize the incredible contributions of women lawyers and politicians throughout our state’s history, and we also aim to empower a new generation of legal minds to succeed. This is just one of the reasons we work so hard to invest in our local communities and spread awareness about the issues that matter. We look forward to hearing from Dr. Wilson at the upcoming WLD Centennial Celebration Kick-Off.
