The Ladies of the Supreme Court

Last night, the only female Supreme Court Justices gathered at the Newseum in Washington DC to celebrate the 30-year anniversary of Justice O’Connor’s appointment to the Court. Both Mike Sacks at Huffington Post and Tony Mauro at the National Law Journal have coverage. UPDATE: Adam Liptak at the New York Times also has coverage.

While the Justices acknowledged the progress of equality at the Court, Justice O’Connor  noted that “maybe you haven’t noticed, but I think about 51 or 52 percent of the population are females. And I think they notice when their public bodies are dominated entirely by one sex. I think women care about that and they should. I really think that’s part of the deal.”
