This will come as a shock to feminists, male journalists and assorted others who care about the right to write for a living.
My tale begins a half-century ago when hockey writers were given a ticket for every Rangers game at Madison Square Garden. Nothing wrong -- or startling -- about that. Right?
There was a message clearly printed on every ticket stub: LADIES NOT PERMITTED IN THE PRESS BOX.
Incredible, but true.
I mention this because in the days and weeks following my wife Shirley’s death (May 13), a number of articles appeared about the manner in which she led the battle to erase that form of media discrimination against women.
