Justice Sonia Sotomayor just celebrated her third anniversary on the U.S. Supreme Court. I wish her a happy anniversary and thank President Obama for appointing the third woman and first Hispanic to the nation’s highest court.
Justice Sotomayor sends a powerful message to women and girls that they can have grand aspirations because they can see someone in authority who looks like they do. The president’s appointment also says that he values women and girls. Throughout his term, President Obama has proven that he is a strong advocate for issues essential to women and their families. Justice Sotomayor is an important example of his commitment.
