#GoodRead | Women in power: Is the tide turning?
Last month in New York City, Faiza Saeed made history.
A veteran lawyer with an impeccable record, Saeed was named the first female presiding partner at Cravath, Swaine & Moore, a venerable 200-year-old Wall Street law firm that has been involved in some of the biggest and most valuable corporate mergers and acquisitions in business history.
How rare was Saeed’s appointment? According to the National Association of Women Lawyers, only three of the 200 largest law firms in the U.S. had female managing or presiding partners.
