Thank you to the Senate for confirming Sonia Sotomayor as a United States Supreme Court Justice!

And thank you to all of the senators who informed this choice and the nomination process.

Ruth – you’re not alone any more!

Here’s to the message this sends to the women of America – old and young. As Ginsburg recently said about being the lone women at the court:

The "worst part," is the image of a single woman at the high court projects, particularly to young people visiting the court: "Young women are going to think, 'Can I really aspire to that kind of post?' "

(Couldn't resist this photo of Federica Lomoriello, 11, portraying retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor during a President’s Day and Women’s History Month celebration at Nativity School.)
