In Her Words
is a unique snapshot of women in the legal profession from around the world at a defining point in history: following a century of progress but in the midst of a global crisis causing profound uncertainty.
For International Women’s Day 2020, women gathered across 6 continents to have their photographs taken as part of the ‘Face the Future’ campaign, celebrating gender equality and diversity in the law. Little did they know that we were on the verge of the Covid-19 pandemic, which threatens to undo decades of progress. In Her Words
features the portraits and written reflections of this diverse group of women, united by the legal profession, on the extraordinary times that followed that photoshoot and their expectations for the future.
