Sophonisba Breckinridge: Lawyer and activist
This talk examined the remarkable career of our graduate Sophonisba Breckinridge, JD 1904, the first woman to graduate from our Law School -- after earning a PhD degree from our university. Her career included feminist activism and international diplomacy, and, as a lesbian woman, she sought recognition for same-sex relationships.
