In collaboration with the Chicago Bar Association Alliance for Women and the American Bar Association Commission on Women in the Profession, please join the Women's Affinity Group of Baker & McKenzie to celebrate International Women's Day on March 8, 2013 in Baker & McKenzie's Chicago office to mark the economic, political, and social achievements of women.

Organizations, governments, charities, educational institutions, women's groups, corporations, and the media celebrate the day. We celebrate the achievements of women while remaining vigilant and tenacious for further sustainable change. There is global momentum for championing women's equality, and this program celebrates that progress.

ABA President Laurel Bellows will speak on two principal issues: equal pay and domestic violence. Throughout the program we will also have an international dialogue, hearing from women around the world talking briefly about their experiences as women in their own countries, some of the struggles they believe women face where they are from, and what is being done to improve the standing of women.
