Henenberg-Hattie - still image

Henenberg-Hattie - still image

In 1925, the governor of Texas appointed the state's first all-female supreme court to hear an appeal involving Woodmen of the World, a fraternal group whose members included virtually every male lawyer in the state. A pioneer in other ways as well, Hattie Henenberg was a member of this court. In this photo, she is in the center, with her fellow justices Hortense Ward on the left and Ruth Brazzil on the right.
