I didn’t talk about diversity or inclusivity in the legal profession for nearly thirty years. Nor did I want to speak about women lawyers or later, female mediators.
“It’s a toxic topic,” I’d say to people who asked me to comment. “I don’t want to be a woman lawyer. I just want to be a lawyer.”
Though I’ve been told by feminists that “it’s the only voice you have,” I didn’t want to speak with a “woman’s” voice. I’m not “compassionate” (read: weak) or compliant.
