Sarah Weddington successfully argued the landmark Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision in 1973. She is a well-respected teacher, attorney and legislator who has secured her place in history as an advocate and defender of women’s issues. From her former position as a Texas legislator, to her place as Jimmy Carter’s special assistant on women’s issues, to her precedent as the youngest women ever to try–and win–a case before our nation’s most prestigious court, Weddington has set the example of successful female leadership.
