Just looked into this case, article doesn't feel right[edit]

Don't personally have time to revise it, but it doesn't feel like there's enough legal discussion as to why she was prohibited from joining. I'm sure the court had some sort of rationale, even if it would be found flawed today. It'd be unusual, even back then, for a court to simply say "nope, no women" without anything to back it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.185.109.27 (talk) 20:45, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

What facts do you have to suggest that a court at that time wouldn't have considered the fact that she was a woman a sufficient rationale? The history of Myra Bradwell is very well known in Chicago.Ileanadu (talk) 01:53, 22 September 2012 (UTC)

What does this sentence mean? "The state was worried about the effect women would have on the administration office." — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.176.201.122 (talk) 17:54, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

Timeline problem[edit]

The article says that Myra Bradwell died in 1894. Yet a part of the article says:

"In August 1896, the Illinois Seventh Circuit JUdge examined Bradwell's Legal ability. He pronounced her qualified and suggested that the Illinois State Supreme Court Issue her a license;..."

Clearly, one of those dates is wrong.Ileanadu (talk) 01:55, 22 September 2012 (UTC)
