SANDRA DAY O'CONNOR DAY

Written by
Governor Ducey proclaimed September 25th to be Sandra Day O'Connor Day. It was on this day in 1981, 38 years ago, that Sandra Day O'Connor was sworn in as the first woman to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court where she served for 24 years. During that time she made key decisions in many cases; including landmark cases like: Brown v. Legal Foundation of Washington, Grutter v. Bollinger and Planned Parenthood v. Casey. She also paved the way for the other woman justices to join the bench first with Ruth Bader Ginsburg in 1993, followed by Sonia Sotomayor in 2009, and Elena Kagan in 2010. Gov. Ducey called Sandra Day O'Connor, "A role model, trailblazer and Arizonan through and through, she has been a tireless advocate for justice, while inspiring countless generations around the world,” and it is for this reason we celebrate her and her achievements. Happy Sandra Day O'Connor Day!
