"In 1878, the United States Supreme Court denied lawyer Belva

Resolved Question:

"In 1878, the United States Supreme Court denied lawyer Belva Lockwood the right to argue cases before the Court stating there was 'no English precedent' for admitting women lawyers to the Bar. The Court required that 'special legislation' be enacted before women would be permitted to act as lawyers in the courtroom.

"To remove this barrier, Lockwood herself drafted the necessary legislation and successfully argued for its passage before the House Judiciary Committee. The bill became law in February of 1879, and the very next month Lockwood became the first woman to argue a case before the Supreme Court. This groundbreaking achievement was only one in a distinguished career; in 1884, Lockwood also became the first woman to appear on a presidential ballot."

Base your answer solely on the contents of this passage.
