Sandra Day O'Connor

Sandra Day O'Connor

As the U.S. Supreme Court heads towards its opening session the first Monday in October, Marcia Franklin talks with retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.

O'Connor, the first woman to serve on the court, was the keynote speaker at the Andrus Center for Public Policy's conference on women and leadership, and received its annual leadership award. The two discuss several of O'Connor's interests — civic education for children, judicial independence, and fly fishing. Franklin also talks with Dr. David Adler, the director of the Andrus Center, about his goals for the conference.
