Celebrating Women in Law – The First 100 years exhibition

This week we have been delighted to host an exhibition to commemorate and celebrate the centenary of the Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act 1919 which paved the way for women to practice in law for the first time.

The official First 100 Years exhibition artwork that was on display in Chambers, detailed some of the key achievements of women over the last hundred years – with it’s key message of “Celebrating the past to shape the future for women in law”.

On Tuesday we had the privilege of welcoming the founder of the movement, Dana Denis-Smith, onto our panel, to discuss just how far women in the law have come, the obstacles women have faced and challenges which still pose a threat to the retention of women in law. We were also joined by Helen HendryCharlotte Worsley, Camilla Buck and Emily Reed.

On Thursday, HHJ Belcher, HHJ Wigin and HHJ Finnerty all kindly joined our panel and provided a wealth of insight into their careers as women in the law. We were also joined by Kama Melly QC, Janine Wolstenholme, Kate Batty, Lorraine Harris and Kirsten Mercer.

Both evenings were enjoyed by all, with some fantastic canapés provided by local supplier Relish.
