Abstract:     
This article is a brief biography of the life of Kate Stoneman, the first woman to be admitted to the New York State Bar. In 1886, she was the first woman to pass both the written and oral sections of the bar exam, but was denied admission based solely upon her gender. It would take a change in the New York law to permit a woman to be admitted to bar.

Kate Stoneman was a champion of the suffrage movement and an important figure in womens rights movements.
