Woman May Be Seated as Juror

Oct. 20, 1909, Woman Juror
Oct. 20, 1909: Johanna Engleman may become California’s first woman juror. I’ll try to find a more legible copy of this story.

Oct. 23, 1909, Woman Juror
Johanna Engleman of Santa Monica almost became the state’s first woman juror, but was removed by a peremptory challenge from the defense. Notice that “a woman upon her first marriage acquires a personal status of citizenship which cannot be lost as in the case of other citizens; that this status is not affected by her subsequent marriage.”
