Even Female Supreme Court Justices Get Interrupted a Lot by Men | Mother Jones | May 2016

Men on the court spent a lot of time interrupting the two youngest
female justices, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor. Sotomayor was
interrupted 57 times during arguments, while Kagan got cut off 50 times.
The next most-interrupted person on the list was Justice Stephen
Breyer, who got interrupted 36 times—more than 35 percent less
than Sotomayor, despite his habit of long, and sometimes impenetrable,
hypothetical streams of consciousness from the bench.
