“Women must enter the legal profession in order to improve judicial access for ordinary citizens. They must not only have the desire to practice law, hard work and honesty but also the strength to learn and persevere. It is also necessary for women to enter the legal profession to achieve equality in society. When women enter the legal profession, they feel empowered, and women who have been victims of injustice become aware that they can seek justice.”
