Some Snips for it...

1873: Bradwell v. Illinois rejected a woman’s claim that the Fourteenth Amendment required the state to allow her to practice law in the first sex discrimination case heard by the U.S. Supreme Court

Snip...

1850: Roberts v. City of Boston (Massachusetts) found no constitutional impediment to segregated schools

snip...

1875: Minor v. Happersett (Missouri) held that a state could constitutionally forbid a woman from voting

snip...

1906: Hodges v. United States (Arkansas) reversed a conviction against whites who had ejected “citizens of the United States of African descent” from their jobs; the decision narrowed the congressional civil rights authority under the Thirteenth Amendment
