Womens Law Center to celebrate 40 years

Tomorrow the Women’s Law Center will celebrate four decades of advocating for women’s rights, the Daily Record reported today. The organization, founded in 1972, will honor a leader who played a pivotal role at the center in each decade.

For the first decade of the 21st century, the honorees are two law school associations that support the WLC. Representing the University of Maryland Carey School of Law is Reena Shah, director of the Human Rights Project at Maryland Legal Aid.

“I saw that women of my generation thought that equal rights had been achieved,” said Shah, who graduated from the University of Maryland law school in 2007.  “I saw a sense of indifference, and I didn’t buy that. There are always forces in society and women are always such targets in terms of how different forces can come in and take their autonomy.”
