De Burca and Anderson v. Attorney General

The plaintiffs were two female criminal defendants who chose to be tried by a jury and objected to the Juries Act of 1927 which excluded all women from jury pools except those who opted to be part of the potential jurors list.  The Supreme Court ruled the Juries Act unconstitutional because it constituted invidious discrimination on the basis of sex.
