2011 Fifth Annual Banquet
November 10, 2011
The Mother Attorneys Mentoring Association of Seattle celebrated our Fifth Annual Luncheon on November 10, 2011, at the W Hotel in Seattle. MAMA Seattle presented its Leadership and Justice Award to the Honorable Betty Binns Fletcher of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. The award is given to an individual who has paved the way to success for and has served as an inspiration to other women attorneys striving to excel in their legal careers while balancing family demands. Judge Fletcher is an outstanding example of a lawyer who paved the way for women lawyers while managing both career and motherhood. Her remarks were thoughtful and wise, and moving as we all look out at the landscape of being an attorney mother in this day and age. Judge Fletcher is one of our heroes who truly led the way. Introductory comments were provided by two of her children, Katherine Fletcher and Dr. Paul R. Fletcher.
