A respected attorney and keen advocate for a variety of issues and initiatives, Kelly Hyman—perhaps best known for playing the role of Loretta on The Young and the Restless—unwraps the matter of women’s issues in today’s society as she reveals more about her passion for equality, balance, peace, human rights, and more.
“From gender-based violence and sexism to reproductive health, the term ‘women’s issues’ has long been used as something of an umbrella term,” explains Hyman, “often presented without a precise definition.”https://finance.yahoo.com/news/kelly-hyman-explores-womens-issues-161000012.html
Also commonly presented with somewhat divisive undertones, she says, while generally well-intentioned, the subject of women’s issues presents as something of a paradox. “The term ‘women’s issues’ in itself can create barriers,” explains Hyman, “to men’s involvement, when, in fact, both men and women must together participate in seeking a resolution to any such issue or issues.”
A native Floridian now settled in Denver, Colorado, Kelly Hyman is an Australian-American who was raised between New York City and Southern California. Appearing on numerous television shows including The Young and the Restless, Law & Crime, Fox News, the Ethan Bearman show, and The Ingraham Angle, Hyman is a staunch advocate for women’s rights whose other interests include the law, current events, social justice, voting rights, female empowerment, and mindfulness. A graduate of UCLA and the University of Florida College of Law, Kelly Hyman is today an attorney at Franklin D. Azar & Associates focused on class actions and mass tort litigation. She is happily married to federal judge Paul G. Hyman, Jr.
