Belle Case La Follette Graduated

Belle Case La Follette

Belle Case La Follette was the first woman to graduate from UW Law School. Though she never practiced law, La Follette held a prominent place in Wisconsin history—as a women’s suffrage activist, member of the women’s peace party, and co-founder (with husband Robert “Fighting Bob” La Follette) of La Follette’s Weekly Magazine, now The Progressive. Read more about Belle La Follette and five other Law School trailblazers in the Spring 2013 issue of the Gargoyle.
