Frequently asked Questions
Being ‘legally wise’ is having the wisdom to navigate daily life, having more power over outcomes, and having knowledge about how things work in our system and society.
Wisdom includes emotional intelligence. This is a person’s ability to perceive, control, evaluate and express emotions. Not having this ability puts women at more of a disadvantage than they already are – because the legal industry is set up by men, for men. The legal industry already has biases against women. Legally Wise Women advocates that learning and increasing emotional intelligence is an important determinant of successfully navigating any legal issue … and a successful life.
Knowledge is power. Hence, legal wisdom is gained through education; but education in the frank and realistic terms of the modern world that is actually accessible for women to use. Rather than indoctrination into the legal fraternity and jargon, women need to be able to navigate issues they find in everyday life, and understand how to manoeuvre wisely through the legal system for their best possible outcome.
