Women attorneys in leadership as elected prosecutors and judges are a profound force to increase the competency and capability of the American justice system. Women leaders are exceptional at balancing the dual purposes of protecting the innocent and holding the guilty accountable. There is a critical need to build the capacity off women attorneys in a nonpartisan setting to run for political office or apply for appointed judicial positions.
The hard work and commitment of women attorneys, whether as career prosecutors or in other public service careers, is what is needed to bring positive change and growth to the nation’s courts. Women attorneys are encouraged to identify and hone the skills required to compete for political office whether by election or appointment. Partners are encouraged to lift up women leaders and build their capacity to take on larger and more powerful leadership roles in their community.
