Cross-Dressing Lawyer Hangs Up His Dress

I just couldn't pass up news about a lawyer supporting women in law, albeit in a rather different way:

"A male lawyer who appeared in court dressed in women's clothes as a protest against what he said was New Zealand's overly masculine judiciary was suspended Wednesday after being found to be in contempt of court.

"The New Zealand High Court found Rob Moodie, a 68-year-old, balding man who appeared in court in dresses and toting a handbag, was in contempt for circulating suppressed documents outside the court in one of his cases.

Moodie officially changed his name to 'Miss Alice' as part of his protest against the 'old boys network' that he said runs the nation's judiciary, and was granted an award for the most bizarre conduct by a lawyer in 2006 by London's The Times newspaper."
