Women's History Month

Sandra Day O'Connor was the first woman to be put on the Supreme Court.  Supreme Court Justices are there for life, but she retired a few years ago to take care of her sick husband.  Recently she wrote a book documenting the important things the Supreme Court has done.  She lists and analyzes important cases throughout the history of the Supreme Court.  One thing she said that was interseting was the Supreme Court is the only branch of government that writes why it made the decisions it did.  After Justice O'Connor we have p;ut two more women on the Supreme Court!
