Since 1789, 3,338 men have served as federal judges or justices and only 463 women. Only five of our nation’s 115 Supreme Court justices have been women. Currently, there are 264 women actively serving on our federal courts, compared to 538 men. Women make up 51 percent of the population but a mere 33 percent of our federal judges. We still have so much work to do.
