President’s Message from page 3 unknowingly, brightly leading us into a future where their courage will most certainly forge a better path. And who could be tinier than our own Judge Sondra Miller! Judge Miller’s small and wispy frame belies a strength and perseverance that dwarfs men twice her size. Judge Miller was in the first class at Harvard to admit women and she was also the first woman to be appointed as an Associate Justice in the Appellate Division, Second Department. She is one of the “Founding Mothers” of the WWBA and still works tirelessly to advance the status of women through our organization and at the state level through her committee work in WBASNY. Every time I see Judge Miller struggle to reach for a microphone placed too high for her petite size, I wonder how many judges and opposing attorneys misjudged this amazing woman. She is my favorite “crocus” of the WWBA. Too often women – especially those of us who hover around five feet tall – are immediately judged to be meek and frail and must work doubly hard to be taken seriously, whether it be in the courtroom or in other phases of our very complicated, very demanding lives. I hope that the analogy of the crocus has given you a bit of inspiration to set out to disprove this misconception. Burst forth, ladies, and show your strength, your bravery and your vibrant colors of hope! ◗ Hélène Côté, Sherry A.
