We had a chance to speak during the dinner and then afterwards we were able, together, to speak with Chief Judge Kaye. I wanted to share the photo a friend took of Lilly and me.

Westchester NOW members gathered on March 17, 2009, at Panera Bread in Scarsdale for fellowship at the chapter's membership meeting.

Pioneer of Justice and Equality for Women and the Law Award

Pace Law School Dean Michelle Simon

Westchester NOW planning committee members, Susan Damplo and Wendy Wild, attended the Pace Law School Pioneer of Justice and Equality for Women and the Law Award ceremony on Saturday, March 14, 2009. This year's recipient was Professor Margaret L. Satterthwaite, Faculty Director of the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice at NYU School of Law, and Assistant Professor of Clinical Law of the the International Human Rights Clinic. Prof. Satterthwaite spoke eloquently of her human rights work in Haiti and Northern Ireland, and around the globe, of her efforts on behalf of those persecuted on the basis of their sexual orientation. Pace Law School Dean, Michelle Simon, introduced the honoree, on behalf of the Women's Association of Law Students, which presented the award. Dean Simon is the third female dean of the law school. She spoke passionately about the need for a women's association of law students as well as the need for vigilance throughout society and the importance of recognizing pioneers for women such as Prof. Satterthwaite so long as women's equality remains a theory rather than an reality.
