Our Guest Speaker will be Gretchen R. H. (“Becky”) Vose
Becky Vose entered the University of Florida Law School in 1971, when there was a 10% cap on the number of women who were allowed to enroll, and when women (even women law students) were “shuffled” out of the law library by male students – No joke! Becky was valedictorian of her class in 1973, was an editor on Law Review, and was both Senior Class President and Chairperson of the Council of Ten. Even with that record she had an extremely difficult time finding a job in Florida after graduation. Now Becky is 70 years old, has 5 grandchildren, and is the senior partner of the Vose Law Firm which represents local governments throughout the state, including the City of Cocoa Beach. Conditions have dramatically changed for women lawyers from the early ‘70s to now, and Becky will share with you her inspirational story that reflects those changes over time.
