While women still have a long way to go toward chipping away at the disparate gender representation in law, there’s one place where they are overwhelmingly dominating: the annual South by Southwest festival and conference in Austin, Texas.

While women make up just 1 in 3 lawyers in the United States, they represent 68 percent of the 59 attorneys featured as speakers or panelists throughout the duration of the event. By our count*, there are 40 female attorneys to 19 males.

While many of the women lawyers featured are speaking or participating at panels with a gender focus (i.e. Ain’t I A Woman: Importance of Addressing Race Within the Womxn’s Movement), women are also heading events like “The Esports Gamification of Real Sports” and other sessions with an emphasis on emerging technologies and intellectual property.

SXSW has made big strides in its diversity and minority representation since 2015, when the conference made headlines for sexist behavior by former Google executive Eric Schmidt, who often interrupted his co-panelist, Megan Smith. SXSW speaker guidelines emphasize diversity in gender and ethnicity, as well as location, employment and thought and opinion.

See below for a list of attorneys featured at SXSW, alphabetized by first name. This is not a comprehensive list and includes attorneys we identified through complex investigative techniques, such as searching terms like “lawyer” and “attorney” in the events list.

*Gender count based on names traditionally associated with specific gender pronouns, in addition to referencing photos provided by speakers in their profiles. It’s admittedly an imperfect system, but one that helped us gauge the gender breakdown among speakers/panelists.
