Summary
In this candid interview with Bill Moyers, Sandra Day O'Connor discusses women's rights within the context of her role as the Supreme Court's first woman Justice, and the Constitution. Justice O'Connor reveals her own difficulties in breaking into the male-dominated legal profession, how she balanced work with family, and how her ultimate ascent from assistant attorney in the Arizona State Attorney's Office, to the state's first female senator, led to her Supreme Court appointment. Citing Constitutional precedents, O'Connor defends several controversial opinions on the issues of affirmative action and abortion.
