March 2024

March is Women’s History Month in the U.S. I can think of no better time to honor the often-overlooked contributions of women throughout history and to celebrate the women whose shoulders we stand upon. 

The theme of this year’s Women’s History Month is “Women Who Advocate for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion” and if that does not describe the women in our group, I don’t know what does! A diverse group of women have always been at the forefront of every social justice movement, addressing systemic inequities and promoting a more inclusive and just society. Whether they are part of the LGBTQ+ community or allies; whether they are jurists or trailblazers of a different form, I encourage us all to recognize women throughout the world who understand that, for a positive future, we need to eliminate bias and discrimination entirely from our lives and institutions. As judges we must be committed to challenging gender discrimination and ensuring gender parity; not just this month, but all year long. And we must always remember that an uneven playing field will never bring equality or justice. 

At times like these, I am incredibly grateful for our Association and the women who created, guided and strengthened our mission. The LGBTQ women who frequently stood alone in their courthouses, and whose bravery made our hopes and dreams possible. They have always known the value of equity, diversity and inclusion. Thirty years later, we are stronger, bolder and better because of them. And I am equally grateful for the brilliant women who guide our group today. I am constantly inspired and awed by your passion, your wisdom and your selfless commitment to equity, diversity and justice. Thank you for you.

As always, please feel free reach out to us at or join one of our weekly Zoom meetings to connect with these inspirational women. Our community is our strength.
