President Ronald Reagan Nominates Judge Sandra Day O’Connor


A few days after Justice Potter Stewart retired in July 1981, President Ronald Reagan announced his intention to nominate Judge Sandra Day O’Connor, fulfilling his campaign promise to appoint the first woman to the Supreme Court. On August 19, 1981, President Reagan formally submitted O’Connor’s name to the U.S. Senate. At the time of her nomination, O’Connor said, “I happily share the honor with millions of American women of yesterday and today whose abilities and conduct have given me this opportunity for service.”

Justice Sandra Day O’Connor is currently featured in two exhibits located on the ground floor of the Supreme Court Building.
