Janet Mary Riley was the first woman to hold a full-time law school faculty position in New Orleans and is credited with helping to change Louisiana law to make women equal partners in their marriages.  Mentees who worked with her included activists such as Clay Latimer and Mindy Milam on the repeal of the Head and Master Law, as well as countless female and male attorneys who have worked in many endeavors concerned with social justice from the 1960s to the present.  Janet Mary Riley: An Angel With Teeth is the subject of a lecture by Janet Allured, on April 11, 2:30-3:30 pm in the Monroe Library.
