The Supreme Court Women Who Will Shape Justice Kavanaugh


In the wake of Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation proceedings, citizens are left to wonder what will happen next for the newly appointed judge. However, some people speculate that his time in the Supreme Court will largely be influenced by the strong, independent women who will sit next to him on the bench. A largely unheard, yet important tradition of novice justices is to make coffee for the senior members of the court. This includes fierce women like Justice Sotomayor, Justice Ruth Bader, and Justice Elena Kagan. Influential women could provide much needed consul in impactful cases such as Roe Vs. Wade, potentially steering him in the direction of protecting women’s rights.
