  • Text from: Stanford Rathbun Lecture in 2017

"All of us revere the constitution and the court. We aimed to ensure that when we leave the court, the third branch of government will be in as good shape as it was when we joined it. Earlier I spoke of great changes I have seen in women's occupations. Yet one must acknowledge the still bleak part of the picture.

Most people in poverty in the United States and the world over are women and children. Women's earnings, here and abroad, trail the earnings of men with comparitable education and experience. Our workplaces do not adequately accommodate the demands of childbearing and child rearing. And we have yet to devise Effective ways to ward off sexual harassment at work, and domestic violence in our homes. But I am optimistic that the movement toward enlisting the talents of all who compose, we the people will continue As expressed by my brave colleague, the first woman to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, for both men and women, the first step in getting power is to become visible to others, and then, to put on an impressive show.

As women achieve power, the barriers will fall. As society sees what women can do, as women see what women can do, there will be more women out there doing things and we'll all be better off for it. To that ex-, expectation I can only say amen."
