    Today, we are talking about a topic near and dear to our hearts, being a woman in the legal profession. It's 2016, are we really still having this same tired conversation about women in the workplace? Yes, yes we are.

    In this episode we discuss:

    • What is it really like to be a woman in the legal workforce?
    • Why is it so hard to be a woman in the legal profession?
    • Lee and Alison share their experience as lawyers, and from other jobs
    • What is the "Martha Stewart" complex and why is it dangerous for women?
    • Dealing with the lack of sponsorship for female lawyers
    • How motherhood fits into your career as a lawyer
    • Why are we not openly discussing the challenges of pregnancy and motherhood in the legal profession? 
    • Where can we go from here?
