"Ms. Rikleen's book is an insightful and well reasonsed review of issues affecting the legal profession today and how those forces often work against the advancement of women attorneys. Ending the Gauntlet provides a comprehensive review of the issues facing women today, extensive research about these concerns and recommendations for change. The book's approach is a refreshing one noting that while women face day to day challenges to succeed given our culture, the real problem is the one faced the legal profession overall. Ms. Rikleen rightly appreciates that it is time to redefine what it means to be sucessful in the legal profession. She offers hope that the legal profession can allow the opportunity for all lawyers to succeed and in achieving that success, there is a place for serving clients, raising healthy children, caring for elderly parents and participating in our communities."
