From the Indiana Lawyer:
For decades, attorneys have admired the grit of Shirley Shideler, the first woman in Indiana history to become an associate at a major law firm in 1964.
Shideler broke glass ceilings when she advanced to partner at Barnes & Thornburg LLP in 1971, also becoming the first woman to make partner at a large Indiana firm. Again, in 1998, she became the Indiana Bar Foundation’s first female president. Shideler made leaps and bounds in an industry historically dominated by men before her death in 2003.
