Justice (Retd) Sujata Vasant Manohar has added yet another feather to her cap by bagging the 'Ruth Bader Ginsburg Medals of Honour' award. The recognition, presented to her virtually, celebrates the life and achievements of remarkably inspiring judges from across the world who fought for gender equality all their life.
Justice Manohar started her career as Advocate in Bombay in 1958, and was appointed as a permanent judge of the Bombay High Court in 1978. She also served as the Chief Justice of the Kerala High Court prior to her elevation to the Supreme Court as its first woman judge.
Manohar is an honorary fellow of Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford, and an honorary bencher of Lincoln's Inn, London. She is also a patron of the Oxford University Commonwealth Law Journal.
