Don’t Just Call Her a Woman Lawyer…

In the 1920s, Vivian Simpson (1903-1987) overcame discriminatory obstacles to become the first female attorney in Montgomery County. She practiced in Rockville until her retirement in 1980. Join Peerless Rockville and the Montgomery County Circuit Court (MCCC) Law Library on Tuesday, October 20 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the MCCC Law Library to learn about this remarkable woman, view an exhibit on her life, and hear remembrances of her colleagues. Wine and cheese will be served. RSVP: info@peerlessrockville.org or call 301-762-0096. The event is free and open to the public.
