Why don’t we strike?
By Danielle Cohen Immigration Law Solicitor LinkedinDanielle Cohen has over 20 years of experience as a lawyer and a reputation for offering professional, honest and expert advice.
Danielle Cohen and Helen Taylor, a caseworker at the firm, have collaborated together to write an article commenting on gender inequality within the legal profession. The article has been published in the Law Gazette and reflects on both the similarities and differences between women in law today, and the women who went on strike in the Ford factory in Dagenham in June 1968. It speculates as to the reasons why women in the legal profession have not copied the action of the Dagenham machinists and also taken to strike action.
