A Personal Story / 15.03.2012

Pauline Floyd was a pioneer and an excellent role model for women pursing a career in law. Not only did she enter the legal field at a time when female attorneys were rare, she was one of the youngest to practice in the country. Even more impressive was the fact that she was the youngest female lawyer admitted to practice before the Supreme Court (some sources say youngest person ever, some say youngest woman, but I believe it's the latter). Now that is an incredible achievement worthy of highlighting for Women's History Month and also a good reentry the old category of "A Personal Story."
