Shownotes

The year was 1970. The prior year my family had visited Washington and I saw all these young people working on the floor of the Senate. They were Senate pages, and that looked like something I really wanted to do. For some reason, I did not notice that they were all boys.  

In 1970, when I was 16, I wrote to my Senator about being his page. I was told that girls were not allowed to be pages. That started my journey to get the opportunity. Listen as I retell the story and how it evolved with the help of my father. 

Because it was the time of the women's movement, it became a national story. At 16, I had no frame of reference as to how to handle all the attention.


It is a story of triumph and courage and reslilience and overcoming obstacles. I hope you find it meaningful
