Join the Woman2Woman Referral Network

Kudos to Kathleen Balthrop Havener – an inspirational example of a woman helping women. Ms. Havener has established a woman to woman referral network for women lawyers, in honor of Madeleine Albright who said, “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.”

The referral network Web site serves as a resource for women lawyers and clients of any color, size, shape, orientation, or gender to seek assistance with legal matters from particular women lawyers, with particular expertise, and/or in particular regions of our country and world. Women interested in joining the network can sign up for free and search for women lawyers in particular areas of concentration or particular cities.

All women are encouraged to visit the Web site at and utilize and join the network. If you are interested in being a part of the network, you may reach Ms. Havener by e-mail at Additional directions for joining the network are available on the Woman2Woman Web site. ■
