Colleagues and friends remember first woman in IL Supreme Court
Colleagues and friends are remembering the late lawyer and judge Mary Ann McMorrow. She became a lawyer in an era when women were told they were taking jobs away from men, and rose to become the first woman to serve on the Illinois Supreme Court. McMorrow died over the weekend at the age of 83. Illinois Public Radio’s Brian Mackey has more on a career path that, when it began, would have been unthinkable.
