Sandra Day O'Connor

 

When Sandra Day O'Connor finished third in her class at Stanford Law School, in 1952, she could not find work at a law firm because she was a woman. She became an Arizona state senator and, in 1981, the first woman to join the U.S. Supreme Court. O'Connor cast the deciding vote in many important cases during her 24 years on the top court. (1930—present)
