Introduction

Abstract

As a 1959 graduate of Columbia Law School, and a member of its faculty from 1972 until 1980, I applaud the appearance of the Columbia Journal of Gender and Law, and I am pleased to provide this introductory comment. To appreciate the currently evolving participation of women in the study and shaping of law, it is fitting to recall “the way it was,” at Columbia and elsewhere, in not yet ancient days. I will therefore present some samples of things and thinking past.
