The statistics of women in law esepcially in leadership positions are shocking, but there are only 5 is not because there are not enough women leaders in law (& there are not enough), but because lawyers do not use social media and that is how the list is generated.
Social media is an effective and efficient marketing tool and more lawyers need to start using it.
I’m not expecting solicitors to account for, say, half the list. But five seems like an awfully small number. (Please do correct me if I’ve missed anyone from the list.) Is it that the list doesn’t pay enough attention to City lawyers or that there aren’t enough to choose from in the first place?
