- "As a young woman, Lavinia Goodell wanted to be a lawver. What a shocking idea in 1858! "I dare not mention it," she once said. With hard work and determination, Lavinia taught herself the law. In the courtroom, she helped women and poor people. Then, one of her cases landed in the Wisconsin Supreme Court, and Lavinia came up against a judge determined to prevent women from practicing law. Would this strong-minded woman backdown?"--BOOK JACKET.
