LAW WEEK COLORADO
As it is often discussed in the media, in politics and in law offices around the nation, women still face obstacles in the workplace like lower wages, poor representation in the governmental stratosphere and struggles with home-life expectations.
However, one documentary film specifically illustrates the struggle many women attorneys face — legal professionals who choose to balance both the cultural pressures as well as the law.
“Balancing the Scales” is a short film about gender equality among women within the legal profession. Producer, equality activist and attorney, Sharon Rowen, a personal injury and probate attorney and partner based in Atlanta, has been conducting interviews for the film for the past 20 years and has been touring around the U.S., promoting the documentary.
The film was presented Wednesday in Denver by the Center for Legal Inclusiveness.
