 Whenever we think about the justice system, the most astonishing and recognizable symbol is the statue of the Lady Justice with three distinct features: a blindfold covering her eyes, the scale of justice in her left hand, and a sword in her right hand.

The blindfold conveys that the Lady Justice is impartial and fairThe scale of justice weighs the evidence put forth and judges everything based on facts. And the sword represents the authoritative power that Lady Justice holds to pass on her quick and wisdom-full judgements.


The statue of the Lady Justice represents the justice system as equal, fair, unbiased, unwavering, impartial, and full of the law of the homeland.


The story behind her could be traced backed to ancient Egypt. Where goddess Ma’at idealizes qualities like balance, harmony, law, order and justice; Greece, where Greek goddess Themis represents traits of law, order, and fairness; and goddess Dice (or Dike) embodies moral order and fair judgement.


These three goddesses, Ma’at, Themis and Dice, were looked upon by all the ancient philosophers, including Socrates, Plato, and Phaedo and all the mortals with divine love, respect, and compassion to bless the humans with their wisest and fairest judgment.

The moral of the story is why ancient civilizational wisdom chose goddesses and not gods as the highest symbol of the law, order and justice system. Because of all the above-mentioned qualities these goddesses or ladies in general possess.


All these qualities are also carried by 2,55,000 Indian women lawyers fighting for the legal rights of their clients and then gradually becoming judges or even chief justice.


And after the Chief Justice of India N.V. Ramana’s assertion that now it is time to reserve 50% of the seats for women in the judiciary, this number will surely increase exponentially. So, soon we will witness the number rising to eight-nine lakh or even a million by 2025.


Simply, the future is of ladies behind and before the statue of Lady Justice, entirely transforming the country's legal profession and justice system.
