Louise Raggio (1919-2011) was called the "Mother of Family Law in Texas," worked for women's rights for well over a half century. This video has been used to introduce the endowed lecture series at Southern Methodist University SMU named for her. The video has clips of some of the past speakers including Gloria Steinem and Gwen Ifell. Mrs. Raggio founded the Dallas law firm of Raggio & Raggio in 1956 with her husband and where her three sons and other lawyers continue the practice of family and divorce law. For more information, including about her book "Texas Tornado", see www.raggiolaw.com The next Lecture scheduled for August 29, 2011 will feature Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, and there will likely be an undated video, as this one is several years old.
