The Chicago Bar Association Alliance for Women created a traveling
exhibit from the original Bar None
exhibition. It depicts the history of Illinois' women lawyers
and contains reproductions of many of the items from the original
exhibit. Contact the Illinois Association of Museums (217) 524-7080
for more information.
The Chicago Bar Association Alliance for Women published the book,
Bar None: 125 Years of Women Lawyers
in Illinois, to supplement the original exhibit. It
contains thirty-six biographical sketches of the first generation
of women lawyers from Illinois, together with photographs and
articles describing the historical context in which these women
lived. The book may be purchased for $15 plus tax, from the CBA
here for more information.
Law School History of Women Lawyers
In an effort to extend the historiography of women as lawyers
in the United States, the Stanford Law School has created the
Legal History Biography Project from the teachings of Professor
Barbara Babcock. Included in their web site is information on
some of the women lawyers from Bar None.
