    that the unions and thus unionized trades opened to women, because most literally could not get the requisite apprenticeships before.

    The AMA and ABA did the same thing for a long time -- they could claim they didn't bar women in their bylaws . . . but they made sure that medical schools and law schools wouldn't accept many (or any before then).
