What Else She Said

[My grandmother] was investigated by McCarthy, so it was a big topic of conversation in my house about my grandmother during those years, because all those hearings were on TV. It was when I was in junior high or high school that that was happening and I remember it very, very clearly and how proud my family was of her. Nobody felt any kind of embarrassment or shame. We all thought that what she was doing was just fine and standing up for herself was something to be proud of. So that might have affected my thinking, that my family was like that... My grandmother [was a role model]. Although I didn't think of her as a role model, it certainly provided some history in my family, of that kind of [activism].
