In an infamous decision written by Chief Justice Edward G. Ryan, Lavinia Goodell was  denied admission to the bar of the Wisconsin Supreme Court in 1876 because she was a woman.

Originally commissioned by the Director of State Courts Office of the State of Wisconsin, and the Office of the Chief Justice of the State of Wisconsin, Lavinia follows  Lavinia Goodellʼs feisty entry into what was then a manʼs world, just in time for Women’s History Month.

Ilona Pinzke, Sheri Meland,
