“[W]hen I’m sometimes asked when will there be enough [women on the supreme court]? And I say ‘When there are nine.’ People are shocked. But there’d been nine men, and nobody’s ever raised a question about that.

-Ruth Ginsberg in an interview with 10th Circuit Bench & Bar Conference at the University of Colorado in Boulder. 


On 28 November, President of India appointed four more women judges in the Madras High Court taking the number of women judges to a commendable 11.

This is probably the first time in the 125 years history of Madras High Court that eleven women Judges are going to adorn the Court simultaneously.This might also be the time when four women will sworn as the judges at the same time.

Ms. S. Ramathilagam, Ms. R. Tharani, Ms. R. Hemalatha and T.Krishnavalli have been appointed as Additional Judges of the Court.

Currently, the High Court has seven women Judges, including Chief Justice Indira Banerjee.

The other women judges at the Court are Dr. Justice S. Vimala, Justice Pushpa Sathyanarayana, Justice V.M. Velumani, Justice J. Nisha Banu, Justice Anita Sumanth and Justice V. Bhavani Subbaroyan.

The Logical Indian welcomes the move by the President of India on account of which the High Court of Madras will now have 11 women judges. This is a historic move that is sure to work as inspiration to many more women out there.
