Her Honor: Stories of Challenge and Triumph from Women Judges by editor Lauren Stiller Rikleen is a collection of personal stories about respecting female judges. Justice Betty Roberts was the first woman to serve on an Oregon appellate court. Justice Roberts's early days on the court were marked with tension and snide remarks from some of her colleagues on the bench as well as court staff. Betty persisted and refused to be silenced. Justice Joan Dempsey Klein was relentless in her quest for gender equality in the legal profession and the courts. Justice Klein helped change the face of the profession and paved the way for the women after her. Judge Gertner was asked how one becomes a judge, and she answered that after doing everything that should disqualify you for the position, you become a judge.
Her Honor is a collection of motivational and honest stories of smart and brilliant women who reached the pinnacle of their professions. They were working in fields that were never meant for women, according to tradition and custom. These stories are expertly woven together by Lauren Stiller Rikleen, the editor. These stories provide a rare glimpse into how female lawyers and judges persevered in the face of discrimination in the legal profession. They set the road for more fairness and justice for others, both inside and outside of the courts. This story brings to life the struggles, suffering, and joys of female judges. It serves as an example for everyone who wants to advance gender equality, not just female judges and attorneys. This story is proof that it is possible to overcome challenges and right wrongs.
