ORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) - History is being made right now in Allen Superior Court. For the first time, it's a majority female bench, with five of the nine judges women.
"Not just women, but awesome, community-involved, forward-thinking women and it's neat to be a part of that," Hon. Frances Gull said.
Rising to the top of a traditionally male-dominated profession wasn't always easy. In the last four decades, a lot has changed in the legal field and women lawyers and judges are more and more common now.
"The climate is different today," Gull said. "There're more women. Our Chief Justice is a woman."
