Book DescriptionAn anthology of biographies and accompanying photographs documenting and detailing the women who first broke the gender barriers of South Carolina law, "Portia Steps Up to the Bar: The First Women Lawyers of South Carolina," explores how each individual woman set her own groundbreaking path, opening doors that were closed to previous generations of women, and setting the feminine trend of practicing law in South Carolina. From the first woman admitted to the bar in 1918, through decades of women pioneering for shared recognition in a predominantly masculine career field, Ruth Cupp explores these steadfast women until the mid 1970?s. A compilation reflecting sixty years and the growing trend of women practicing law in South Carolina, "Portia Steps Up to the Bar: The First Women Lawyers of South Carolina," explores 129 extraordinary women who re-wrote the rules of their chosen profession and paved the way for generations to follow.
