Rough Road to Justice: The Journey of Women Lawyers in Texas

Imagine a time when married women could not buy or sell property or enter contracts in their own names; a time before women were allowed to vote or to serve on juries; a time when women, although making inroads into fields such as medicine and education, were considered too gentle and sympathetic to be capable of succeeding in the aggressive, competitive nature of courtrooms. This hardbound book describes the many “firsts” of women lawyers in Texas. Walk in their shoes as author Betty Trapp Chapman tells of how they learned the law, established professional careers, and learned to balance their private lives with the demands of being Texas lawyers.
