First 100 Years is a ground-breaking project recording the history of women in law since 1919. In 2019, the project will celebrate the centenary of the Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act 1919 which paved the way for women to become lawyers for the first time. In collaboration with Goldman Sachs and Linklaters, this series of ten podcasts charts the history of women in the legal professions. Progressing decade-by-decade, the podcasts will be around 45-minute discussions between legal pioneers, historians, academics and legal practitioners based on key themes, including gender stereotypes, the work/life balance and diversity. The podcast series is presented by Lucinda Acland. Lucinda has been a volunteer for First 100 Years since November 2015 and is a qualified lawyer. She has experience of recording voice programmes both at the University of Law and Obelisk Support, as well as for the First 100 Years project, for the #OnTheRoll campaign.
