After 191 years, the first woman was named to the US Supreme Court. Today, three women sit on the high court. Do they speak with a different voice when compared to their male counterparts?

Controlling for ideology, gender, and legal factors, this paper analyzes whether the gender of Supreme Court justices impacts case outcomes.
