The Supreme Court-- 1/3 flush with Women
Of the 112 Supreme Court Justices, only 4 have been Women.
Sandra Day O'Connor, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Sonia Sotomayor, & now Elena Kagan.
For the first time in history we will have 3 sitting Justices that are female. Important for many reasons, but the most glaring one is that more than 1/2 the total population of the United States is female, so we really should have equal representation.
Here is a strange bit of Supreme Court history-- Sandra Day O'Connor was appointed in 1981-- it took them 12 years to install a dedicated "Ladies Room"-- because the Court had been dominated by males.
So plunge right into it Ladies!
