#GAReads | Women struggle to break through 'glass ceiling' in Texas judiciary
Texas made history then for having the first all-woman high court in the country, just a few years after women won the right to vote.
But the progressive moment was short-lived: The women were appointed to hear just one case. Texas then waited almost 60 years before the next female justice was appointed to the state Supreme Court, in 1982. And since then, only seven more women have served on the state's highest bench.
