In The Counselors, some of our country's most interesting history-making women take time to share their stories of pain and triumph—as though they were chatting with you over a cup of coffee—with the hope that that their experience might help you along your way. In his foreword to The Counselors, President Bill Clinton writes, “The accomplishments of the women in The Counselors are a testament to the power and promise of the American Dream and are sure to resonate deeply with many young women who have the desire and ability to make their own unique contributions to this legacy of progress.”    

Janet Reno shares that she grew up in a log cabin, and her mother wrestled alligators. Pat Schroeder talks about serving in Congress and running for president. Sandra Day O'Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg discuss gender issues. The women leaders we meet are recipients of the Margaret Brent Award, which was founded by Hillary Rodham Clinton when she served as Chair of the ABA Commission on Women.

Elizabeth Vrato is a graduate of NYU School of Law and a Harry S. Truman Scholar. She graduated magna cum laude from LaSalle University in Philadelphia, where she was given the Political Science Department Award upon graduation and was Class Valedictorian. She has practiced law in both the public and private sectors.

After writing The Counselors, she co-authored a teaching manual with Lynn Hecht Schafran, Gender, Justice & Law: From Asylum to Zygotes (for Judicial, Legal, and Continuing Legal Education). For ten years she has been a member or officer of IWIRC (International Women's Insolvency & Restructuring Confederation, www.iwirc.org).

Elizabeth's interest in politics and history is a family legacy. She is the great-granddaughter of one of the Founding Fathers of Albania, who signed its Declaration of Independence in 1912: Hajredin bey Cakrani (he signed with an over-sized “H” like John Hancock).
