I grew up in the Title IX generation - schools had to offer all the same activities to girls as to boys. I played sports and joined other extracurricular activities. My mother was a housewife for most of my childhood, so I was modeled the traditional division of household duties at home, but this did not serve to make me think I should assume those roles - though it did ingrain in me how much I would like a housewife myself! I truly never had any idea that there were perceived limits as to the roles of men and women. It helps that I'm just shy of 6'0 - none of that patronizing "little lady" stuff was coming my way - and I am more than capable of expressing myself. It never occurred to me that there were jobs I couldn't (or shouldn't) pursue or that I should play dumb or not express my opinions. By the time I got to law school, most law schools were graduating roughly 50% women. From talking to my friends over the years, I realize that my life experience is very different than many women my age.
One experience gave me a view at what my friends talked of...my first husband and I went car shopping for a new car back in about 1989. When the salesman came out, he focused himself completely on my husband; when we were in his office making an offer, he didn't even look at me - which really infuriated me since I was the one with the job and the salary that would be paying for the car - and we made an obnoxiously lowball offer and then walked when he "went to talk to the manager".
I am grateful to have been raised to believe I am equal to anyone. I am even more grateful that I still believe it.
