"These women can buy or sell you"

Hmm, sounds like it might be a good time for women to explore new careers beyond legal in the corporate world. See this Small Business Times article:

"In recent years, many women have successfully climbed corporate ladders to become chief financial officers, commercial lenders, accountants and senior managers of financial companies.

"For the most part, however, the world of investment banking and mergers and acquisitions has remained a man’s game.

"That may finally be changing.

"In southeastern Wisconsin, a small circle of women who help buy and sell companies in Wisconsin, around the country and internationally is stepping to the forefront."

The "Meet the players" list at the end of the piece includes very interesting bios.
