During her four decades as a lawyer, Gloria Allred has represented a wide variety of clients with various discrimination issues. What makes her such a crusader?
We all recognize her face, even if we don’t know her name. Gloria Allred is perhaps the most famous practicing attorney in the United States. She is one of those figures who is pushing us to change our attitudes regarding human rights. Practicing what she calls “creative lawyering,” Allred appeals to the court of public opinion by getting the victim’s perspective into the news. Her methods attract criticism from those who say that Allred is more concerned with the spotlight than in justice. Still her adversaries admit that she is a fighter. Somehow she seems taller than her five foot two stature. How did she become this imposing crusader?
Sometimes the rough things that happen to us provide us with experiences that make us stronger as individuals and more open regarding others. It appears that Allred learned what victims go through in the following dire situation. In her early twenties she was raped at gun point. When she learned that she was pregnant, she sought an abortion, which was illegal at the time. She subsequently suffered hemorrhaging and an infection, recovering only after hospitalization. Allred says she never reported the crime, because she didn’t think that she would be believed. Obviously she made a decision to get through it and help to others
Allred proceeded to obtain her law degree from Loyola University and was admitted to the State Bar of California. Since then she has represented both high profile and ordinary individuals, male and female, straight and transsexual in righting wrongs. In one way or another Allred has been involved in the following cases: The OJ Simpson Trial; The Dodi Fayed Breach of Contract; The Scott Peterson Murder Trial; The Eddie Murphy Paternity Case; The Defense of Brittney Murphy’s Body Guard; The Tiger Woods Scandal; The Anthony Weiner Affair; The Herman Cain Harassment Case; and the Jenna Talackova Controversy. For her extraordinary body of work Allred was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Trial Lawyers.
#52 THU CAN
Gloria Allred has an #52 THU CAN Signature. She was born on a Thursday and in the sign of Cancer. The ruler of her Thursday INNER Self is Jupiter and the Moon is the ruler of her Cancer OUTER Self. Jupiter and the Moon are equally nurturing but in different ways. Jupiter has a strong social outlook and the Moon is personally quite sensitive. We see both qualities in Allred’s character.
Traditional astrology states that Jupiter operates at its greatest capacity placed within the zodiac sign of Cancer. The term is exaltation. In Dayology the Jupiter Day Ray works at its fullest in the Cancer Sun Sign. This energy combination creates wide seeing and committed individuals just like Gloria Allred.
“I start every day with the knowledge that helping people and fighting for justice is my duty, and that nothing worthwhile comes without sacrifice, self- discipline, and courage.“
