"Women In Law " is a personal documentary
about women in the legal profession.
It was inspired by three women who figured prominently
in the directors' background while she was growing up in Quebec City.
Her great aunt, Clara Goodman, got a law degree in 1921
when women in Quebec were not allowed to take the bar exam.
She never practiced.
The tape explores the determination and creativity
with which they have defined their lives.
The directors' intention was to weave personal and
documentary footage into a fabric
which explores the internal mechanisms of our society.
