U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor addresses the annual Pepperdine University Law School Dinner, held February 2, 1985 at the Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles, California. She discusses her recent (1981) appointment as the first woman to be a justice for the U.S. Supreme Court. She describes reactions, both positive and negative, to her appointment, as well as her typical work day at the court and with other justices. She begins her remarks by combining references to a bronze bust in her likeness unveiled at the dinner and the "loosen up" comment made to her by football player John Riggins, which was in the news at the time. 30:09
