The first female lawyer of Illinois, Myra Bradwell

More than 400,000 women are practicing lawyers in the United States today. However, in the 1870s, women were not allowed in the profession. One woman challenged the bans and became one of the first female lawyers in the country. Myra Colby Bradwell is history that deserves to be remembered. This episode of The History Guy is presented by Ms. History.
