On March 3, 1879, #BelvaLockwood became the first woman admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court. She practiced law until she was 83. She died 3 years before the 19th Amendment secured women the right to vote. #WomensHistoryMonth https://t.co/uEb5AArG0k https://t.co/AFAwL056Bl dodsonparker photo
