I have 3 daughters and I wants the glass ceiling smashed to smithereens

I am a qualified lawyer who had a "temporary" career break to have children 17 years ago. It was my personal experience that I couldn't combine a career in the law and be the kind of mother I wanted to be. I have 3 daughters and the oldest now wants to be a lawyer. It is incredible that 20 years after I was told by a crusty old QC that it would be difficult for me to have a career at the Bar with my 2 handicaps (being black and a woman) that my daughter still faces the same issues. Lord Sumption recently predicted that it will be 50 years before there is equality at the Bar - that isn't good enough.
