Women in the Judiciary
Career Choices for High School Students
Maureen Daly, Philadelphia, 1946
This career advice from Ladies' Home Journal of 1946 comes right out with discouraging advice:
"In order to succeed as a lawyer, a woman must work twice as hard as a man. She should avoid any aping of men, always working with them rather than against them. She must develop a tough hide-must never show when she's hurt, or display any weakness. Avoid nagging your clients or your adversaries."
