Women Supreme Court Justices are more frequently interrupted by Men

How Frequently Women Supreme Court Justices Are Interrupted by their Male colleagues? Very frequently according to this study below and this is why it matters - "When a justice is interrupted, her point is left unaddressed, and her ability to influence the outcome of a case or the framing of another justice’s reasoning is undermined."

This behavior reveals their general unwillingness to let the women on their Court make their case.

Worse, this behavior even carries through to advocates who appear before the Supreme Court.  These men show less deference for the women on the Court and interrupt the women regularly, even though Court protocol prohibits such behavior and the Chief Justice is expected to intervene when such a matter occurs.
