    Part activist lawyer, part publicist, Gloria Allred is a self-described avenger for women’s rights. “We allege that she was fired for being too attractive,” Allred intoned at a May 21 news conference with client Lauren Odes, left. Odes had worked in data entry at Native Intimates, a New York lingerie wholesaler.

    Here are some of Allred's other high-profile clients, and the equally high-profile men she took on.
