The following has been lightly edited for clarity. Thank you so much. There were so many things that were off limits to women, policing, firefighting, mining, piloting planes.
All those barriers are gone. And the stereotypical view of people of a world divided between home and child caring women and men as breadwinners, men representing the family outside the home, those stereotypes are gone.
So we speak of parent — rather than mother and wage earner rather than male breadwinner. And my best example is the symphony orchestra.
When I was growing up, one never saw a woman in the symphony orchestra, except perhaps playing the harp. And they made their judgments based on the quality of the performance. What did I leave out?
How does it feel when you look across the country and you see states passing restrictions that make it inaccessible if not technically illegal?
Inaccessible to poor women. We will never see a day when women of means are not able to get a safe abortion in this country. There are states — take the worst case. There will still be a number of states that will not go back to old ways. Remember that before Roe v. New York, Hawaii, California, Alaska.
Other states were shifting. And people were fighting over this issue in state legislatures. Sometimes the pro-choice people were winning. Sometimes the pro-life people were winning. But there was lots of activity in the political arena.
That stopped with Roe v. Wade, because it gave the opponents of access to abortion a single target. It hurts women who lack the means to go someplace else. But when most states allowed divorce on one grounds, adultery, nothing else.
But there were people who went off to Nevada and stayed there for six weeks. And they got a divorce.
That was available to people who had the means, first to get themselves to Nevada, second to stay there for some weeks. If divorce is to be available for incompatibility, it should be that way for every state.THE Supreme Court has upheld President Donald Trump’s ban on travel from several mostly Muslim countries today, rejecting a challenge that it discriminated against Muslims or exceeded his authority.
