Please join us for the Seventh Annual Harvard Women’s Law Association Conference, "19:%: When Will Women Have the Floor?,” taking place at Harvard Law School on Friday, February 8th, in Wasserstein Hall, Milstein East.

    Hello all,

    Just an update, I will have to play tomorrow morning by ear. I do not live on the red line, so depending on how the weather looks when I wake up, I will hopefully see you all there.

    Cross your fingers,

    Hello Everyone!

    Daryl, one of the organizers of New Wave, asked me to host this particular meetup!I'm pretty easy to find, just look for a blonde and pink mohawk :) I know it's rather early, but I would love to meet everyone outside the venue at 8:45 so we can do brief introductions and get pumped for the event itself. See you all soon,
    - Hillary
