84. only if

I'm a "postress" here.

Early in my days in practice, I had a new young friend who was working for a civil liberties outfit and was growing increasingly peeved with her lawyer boss's sexism, and with some particular bit of non-inclusive or pointlessly gender-specific language. It may have been the insistence of some members of the profession on addressing me and other colleagues as "miss" (and of course then starting their letters to me with "Gentlemen:").

She suggested that I start calling myself a Barristeress and Solicitorette.
