Mary Tiera Farrow, more commonly known as Tiera Farrow, photographed in the uniform of the National League of Women’s Services and standing next to an ambulance, ca. 1918. Farrow was one of the few women in the United States who successfully practiced law in the early 1900s despite the discrimination that women faced in the legal field and society more generally. After having been denied the professional benefits of joining any existing bar association, Farrow led a group of 20 women in establishing their own bar in Kansas City.
