Women’s Leader Urges Full Senate to Confirm Judge Sotomayor For U.S. Supreme Court

“The National Partnership for Women & Families is delighted that the Senate Judiciary Committee recognized Judge Sonia Sotomayer’s outstanding qualifications, vast judicial experience, commitment to equal justice and privacy rights, and the welcome diversity she will bring to our nations highest court. 

Judge Sotomayer is a unique and well-qualified candidate whose life history, work experience, and well reasoned rulings show beyond any doubt that she is a jurist of great intellect. 

We urge the full Senate to confirm her as the 111th justice on the Supreme Court.”
