Sandra Day O'Connor
Sandra Day O'Connor (1930-) was the first female Supreme Court Justice. She was appointed by Ronald Reagan, and is considered by many conservatives to be a lapse of judgment on his part. Despite their fears she was moderate on everything, often providing the swing vote on an otherwise split court.
Prior to her post on the Supreme Court, she served as a judge in Arizona. She has since retired to care for her husband, who suffers from Alzheimer's, making her one of the few Justices who retired on their own will. A more recent example is Anthony Kennedy.
- Ruth Ginsburg - the other woman on the Supreme Court.
- Sonia Sotomayor - the third woman. They are only allowed in one at a time.
- Elena Kagan - the fourth. Barack Obama is obviously biased against men.
