Where Are the Women?

Mollie and I were interviewed a couple of weeks ago for an article in Missouri Lawyers Media about the falling numbers of women ascending to partnership in law firms in the state.  And I want to dig a little deeper into our observations.

Set Goals With a Little Help From the Moon
