This Statistic On Supreme Court Justices Puts Brett Kavanaugh’s Nomination Into Sobering Perspective

However, despite the benefits brought by diversity of experiences and backgrounds, SCOTUS has nonetheless had very few women and minority justices. Moreover, this problem is not limited to the Supreme Court. Indeed, as the National Women’s Law Center reported in 2016, only 36 percent of judges in 13 federal courts of appeal in the United States are women — and only 7 percent of these judges are women of color. Moreover, only 33 percent of active United States district court judges are women.
