Hear from Shirley Siegel – a former New York Solicitor General. As the only woman to graduate from Yale Law School in 1941, Ms. Siegel found it very difficult to get a job in the legal profession. She was a woman, and she was Jewish. In this interview, she talks about the prejudices she faced, as well as her professional successes. A participant in the National Youth Administration, a New Deal agency, she has worked on fair housing reform for over 70 years. She now does pro bono work assisting low-income homeowners in New York. This interview was recorded for the American Bar Association’s Women Trailblazers Project.
