Sisters in Law, the Law of the Land, That Is!

A new book spotlights the lives and careers of the first two women to serve on the United States Supreme Court—Sandra Day O’Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Day O’Connor, a Republican who was raised on a western ranch, was named to the Supreme Court by President Ronald Reagan in 1981. Twelve years later, Bader Ginsburg, a Democrat from Brooklyn and daughter of an immigrant, was named to the high court by President Bill Clinton. http://chicagotonight.wttw.com/2016/04/13/sisters-law-profiles-justices-day-o-connor-bader-ginsburg

What I find fascinating is that these women were not able to get a job practicing law or clerking. Only jobs as legal secretaries were
open to them. http://chicagotonight.wttw.com/2016/04/13/sisters-law-profiles-justices-day-o-connor-bader-ginsburg

And now that seems unheard of, for a women not to be able to be a lawyer!  Sounds absurd!  Well, who got next?  That little girl dreaming of what she can become, whatever the little girl dreams she can be, she's next!  She's got next!
