‘The exhibition places the opening of the legal profession to women in the context of the opening of higher education to women in the nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries and, in the year in which we have celebrated (some) women being granted the right to vote, sets the opening of the legal profession in the context of the suffrage campaign. Come along and see what role Christabel Pankhurst played in the opening of the legal profession to women and what Millicent Garrett Fawcett had to say about the Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act as well as finding out more about the pioneering women who, after a long struggle, became the first barristers and solicitors in the United Kingdom, Ireland and the Commonwealth.’
