As I profile each of Florida’s First 150 Women Lawyers, I will be excerpting and referencing information contained in the book “Celebrating Florida’s First 150 Women Lawyers” which was compiled and edited by Wendy S. Loquasto, Esq.
The dedication reads as follows:
We honor them for their strength, commitment and service to the legal profession and their communities.
It is our wish that the story of their lives will inspire future generations to protect the advances they made for women and continue their efforts to improve the status of women in the legal profession.
As Carrie Chapman, founder of the League of Women Voters, once said:
“What could be more appropriate than that women should do for coming generations what those of a preceding period did for them.”
