Women's Law Center Lauds Historic Vote

WASHINGTON -  In a bipartisan 63-37 vote, the U.S. Senate has confirmed Solicitor General Elena Kagan as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. A statement from Marcia D. Greenberger, Co-President of the National Women’s Law Center, follows:

 

"The Senate vote is a defining moment for the Supreme Court, for the cause of justice and for the advancement of women in the United States. Elena Kagan is an exceptionally qualified and accomplished woman who will bring her formidable talents to bear on the most pressing and significant legal issues of the day.

 

"Elena Kagan will make history because, for the first time, three women will serve together on the highest court in the land. A Supreme Court that includes three women will better reflect the nation's diverse population and will give women and their families greater confidence that the Court, when applying the law, will understand how it affects their lives and needs. With Elena Kagan on the bench, the country will be one step closer to the day when it is not only accepted, but in fact expected, that women are just as likely as men to serve on the Supreme Court or in any position of great importance.

 

"The National Women’s Law Center is proud to have supported Elena Kagan's nomination and applauds the Senate for its historic vote."
