The Supreme Court is preparing to have three women judges for the first time in its 68-year history. GoI has notified the appointment of Madras High Court chief justice Indira Banerjee to the Supreme Court. R Banumathi and Indu Malhotra are the two others appointed in the Supreme Court. But they will still constitute an abysmal 10% of the total sanctioned strength of the apex court: 31. As for the total strength of women judges in Indian high courts, it’s less than 12%. The Supreme Court has had illustrious judges who have provided enlightened leadership for promoting progressive jurisprudence, access to justice and the protection of the rule of law
