John Ashcroft introduces his wife

In honor of Women's History Month, Janet Ashcroft (once an outspoken opponent of the Equal Rights Amendment) was asked by her husband (then U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft) to deliver a speech for his female staffers. "He introduces her," a staffer later reported, "by saying she's the woman who taught him how to put dishes away. Yes, that's what he said to the women lawyers. He said she taught him you should rotate your china, put your new plates on the bottom of the stack, so you don't wear them out!"
