Allred opens our eyes not only to the significant positive strides we've made in recent decades, but more important, to how much further we still have to go to empower all members of society, especially women, minorities, and others who are deprived of their rights.

Every birthday I would ask my parents to put some money away for me, in case I ever needed it for a rainy day. One important thing her book emphasized is that if you feel you are being treated unfairly, according to the law, to speak up. Often she talks about her cases as the opposing counsel being filled with backwoods ignoramuses and her being the brilliant attorney dropping witty quips like a sitcom or something. In January 2014 Gloria received the Lifetime Achievement Award from The National Trial Lawyers for her trailblazing and pioneering role in combating injustices and winning new rights especially for women and minorities.
