Long Description:
BELVA LOCKWOOD
First woman to argue before the US Supreme Court, 1879.
Presidential candidate, 1884 and 1888, for the National Equal Rights Party.

At birth Lockwood had neither wealth and social standing nor the promise of a fine education. But eventually she would personally extract her law degree from the President of the United States, become the first woman admitted to the bar of the U.S. Supreme Court, and become a leader in the woman suffrage movement in the late nineteenth century.
