President's Message

Stacy R. Horth-Neubert
WLALA President 2016-2017

 

NOW, MORE THAN EVER, WLALA IS RIGHT WHERE YOU BELONG

As I write my last President's Message, I have to admit that this is has been a tough year to be president of a woman's bar association.  It is certainly not the year I had anticipated.  Like many of us, I had expected a year of celebrating firsts for women.  I had wanted to spend my President's Messages rejoicing in our many breakthroughs and steps forward.  Alas, the pendulum swung the other way.

So instead, I have spent much of my presidency commiserating with so many of you about the rise of deplorable sexism at the highest ranks of our nation, and the shocking abandon of social norms that previously led civil society at least to try to tame the worst of ourselves rather than revel in it.  This has led me to write no fewer than three columns about the need to promote and encourage feminism (April's President's MessageJune's President's Message and July's President's Message).  It's led to me to write a column about the need in this moment to embrace our righteous outrage (July's President's Message).

And, it has shown to me that, now more than ever, WLALA is Right Where You Belong

Because WLALA is a place where we prop each other up when, in times like these, we need it.  It's a place where your fellow women lawyers have your back.  It's a place where we revel in each other's success and commiserate about our failures (and remind one other that the road to success is paved with those failures). 

I am so proud of the year we have had at WLALA, which actually has had its fair share of firsts.
