When Everything Changed ~ a teaser


Today's teaser is from page 242 of When Everything Changed: The Amazing Journey of American Women from 1960 to the Present by Gail Collins, 2009.
"Ruth Bader Ginsburg applied for a Supreme Court clerkship and Justice Felix Frankfurter rejected her after asking, 'Does she wear skirts? I can't stand girls in pants'."

My goodness...wasn't Frankfurter a liberal?

There's liberal, and there's liberal. And I'm not sure ANY guys were liberal about women, back in those days.

Looks very interesting - I think I will have to get this for the Women Unbound challenge. Thanks for stopping by my blog - I just subscribed to yours. :)
