Supreme Cowgirl

Sandra Day O’Connor

This Arizona cowgirl grew up on the Lazy B, a cattle ranch near Duncan. Her father, Harry Day, expected her to pull her own weight and learn the skills necessary to keep the ranch profitable, and that she did. She attended Stanford Law School, became a judge and, in 1981, became the first female justice in the history of the U.S. Supreme Court, where she served with distinction for 24 years. Sandra Day O’Connor can be branded anything but a Lazy B.
