Interview of the Month
An Interview with
by Hon. Lisa Margaret Smith
March is Women’s History Month. WWBA does not limit our work in support of women to March, but rather, we celebrate Women, Children and Families throughout the year, as exemplified in our Mission Statement: “The mission of the WWBA is to promote justice for all, regardless of sex; to advance the social, economic and legal status for women through the law; to expand opportunities for women and to raise the level of competence and integrity in the legal profession.” We must each find a way to celebrate Women’s History Month during March (for example, attend one of WWBA’s programs), and I ask you also to find a way this month to champion the rights of all persons who have been and continue to be unfairly treated in our country.
Renew now and stay part of our dynamic network! Your WWBA membership is June 1 - May 31.
