Each believe inMoreIn my own time and in my own life, I have witnessed a revolution. Sandra Day OConnor Meet the women of the revolution. The women of The Counselors have faced overwhelming opposition with astounding determination and integrity. Each believe in helping other women, and each of them has a host of experiences and advice from which younger women may learn valuable lessons of courage and strength. These are the women who have paved the way for the success of future generations.

Author Elizabeth Vrato asked recipients of the prestigious Margaret Brent Women Lawyers of Achievement Award what they would like to share with young women just beginning their careers. The result of these conversations is a profound look at womens struggle for recognition and success that will captivate a reader of any age or gender. In The Counselors, Janet Reno shares the story of her relationship with her brave mother, who built their log home with her own hands. Ruth Bader Ginsburg explains her crusade to change the laws of the United States to truly make them equal for men and women.

We learn that Sandra Day OConnor was unable to find a job as a lawyer upon her graduation at the top of her class at Stanford -- the only jobs that were offered to her were those of legal secretary -- and of her eventual ascent to the Supreme Court of the United States. In his foreword, Bill Clinton writes, Just as the women in this book were empowered by the efforts and example of those who came before them, a new generation will be inspired and encouraged by the spirit and achievements of this remarkable group.

With wisdom and insight on every page, The Counselors is a penetrating reminder of the power of the human spirit and of the strength and triumph of some of this centurys most amazing women. It is an invaluable resource for women and men of every generation.
