19th Amendment Speaker Series

Aug 25, 2020 @ 3:00PM - Aug 25, 2020 @ 4:00PM



It has been said that diversity is like being invited to the party, but inclusion is being asked to dance. Panelists will discuss their perspectives on the intersection of race and gender, and what impact the 19th Amendment has had on women serving as judges on state and federal courts, their participation in leadership and policy, and what work remains to be done in the future. Panelists include the Honorable Bernadette D’Souza, Judge, New Orleans Civil District Court and past president of the National Association of Women Judges; the Honorable Karen L. Stevenson, Judge, United States District Court for the Central District of California; the Honorable Phyllis Frye, Associate Judge for the Municipal Courts in Houston, Texas; and the Honorable Serena Murillo, Judge, Los Angeles Superior Court.

In recognition of the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, the Los Angeles County Bar Association, the National Association of Women Judges, and Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles present a speaker series featuring successful, inspirational, and impactful women in entertainment, sports, politics, law, academia, and business.  Join us for a series of virtual conversations about how women have achieved success in traditionally male-dominated sectors, have leveraged their power to ensure that other women succeed, how they have succeeded in being heard, and more.
