You mentioned a dearth of articles about women lawyers. You might want to review the March 2008 issue of Leading Lawyers Network, Women’s Edition. Among the lawyers profiled is Mary Hutchings Reed, author of a recent novel, “Courting Kathleen Hannigan.” It chronicles the challenges for women lawyers from the 1970’s to present day. A partner in a prestigious Chicago firm, Kathleen Hannigan’s career is on the line when hard-driving but unpopular attorney Ann Rose sues the firm for sex discrimination when she is passed over for partnership. Rose calls on Kathleen to testify against her partners and, in effect, herself. The book also presents the life-disrupting demands of large firms that affect all associates, but especially women who seek balance in their lives.

Author Mary Hutchings Reed has been a practicing attorney in Chicago law firms for more than 30 years, and is currently of counsel to Winston & Strawn. The book is published by Amersand, Inc. (ISBN 978-0-9761235-6-9).
