Chair of the Archive and Historian Committee


Q: Why did you become a member of the Westchester Women’s Bar Association?

A: It is important for women in the legal profession support each other – the Westchester Women’s Bar Association provides a strong professional and social support network for women to rely upon. It is a dynamic organization, with many resources. I have always been impressed with the enthusiasm of its members and their willingness to promote and assist each other in every way possible.

President's Message

by Kim Berg, Esq.


There can be no dispute that statistically speaking women are adversely affected in larger percentages than men when it comes to both domestic violence and breast cancer. For example, according to the American Cancer Society, for men the lifetime risk of getting breast cancer is 1 in 833 but for women the average risk of developing breast cancer sometime in her life is 1 in 8.  According to the National Coalition against Domestic Violence, a higher percentage of women are victims, with 1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men, experiencing severe physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime.
