“Barbara Babcock is one of our leading legal historians.
Woman Lawyer gives voice to Clara Foltz’s long and
fascinating life, making vivid her important contribu-
tions as a reformer, ‘first’ woman lawyer, and legal
thinker. It will establish itself as a classic in legal stud-
ies, women’s studies, and American biography.”
—Jill Norgren, City University of New York

“Unflinching in its assessment of the temptations of

demagoguery to the pioneering Clara Foltz, Barbara
Babcock has produced a compelling book of enor-
mous and enduring insight into how even gifted
and visionary individuals navigate, shape, and reflect
political and social contests."
