What Else She Said

The clubs were always hard. Because lawyers tend to go to the Union Club or the Algonquin Club. They're all fine now, but it took a long time to make them fine... The Chief Justice Walter McGlaughlin was having a luncheon at the Union Club, and Eileen Griffin and I were with him and the guy at the door said, 'You've got to go down the street to the other entrance.' And he - not a feminist, not an ERA person - he looked at this man and said, 'My judges go with me.' And walked us right in. So people do all sorts of things that break barriers, not intending to.
