New Delhi: For the first time in the history of the Supreme Court, an all-women bench will hear cases in the apex court on Friday.

According to reports, Justice Gyan Sudha Misra will head the women bench with her colleague Justice Ranjana Prakash Desai.

The all women bench will hear cases at court No 4 in the Supreme Court.

However, this all-women bench is temporary and may just be for a day only as Justice Aftab Alam, who sits in court No 4, is not available for the day, enabling the Chief Justice of India to have this women bench.

Notable, there are two women judges in the highest court.
