Interestingly, the SC till date has had only three women judges. Justice Fathima Beevi was the first woman to be appointed judge of the SC in 1989. She retired on April 29, 1992. Two years later, Justice Sujata V Manohar was elevated to the Supreme Court and she retired in August 1999. The last woman judge in the SC was Justice Ruma Pal, who was appointed on the Golden Jubilee day of SC on January 28, 2000. She retired on June 3, 2006.

It's been more than three years and there has not been a single woman judge in the SC since Justice Pal's retirement. Among the women judges in various High Courts, there are four senior enough to be in the realm of consideration.

They are Chief Justice of Jharkhand High Court Gyan Sudha Mishra (made permanent judge in 1994), Justice Rekha Doshit of Gujarat HC (made permanent judge in 1997), Justice Ranjana P Desai of Bombay HC (made permanent judge in 1998) and Justice T Meena Kumari (made permanent judge in 1999).
