Women's Media Center Congratulates Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan on her Confirmation

August 6, 2010

August 5, 2010 (New York)  - The Women’s Media Center congratulates Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan on her confirmation as the fourth woman in US history to sit on our highest court.  We have every reason to be confident that Justice Kagan, who joins the Supreme Court as the third woman currently serving, will be a fair and balanced decision maker on issues affecting women and all Americans. It is also significant that in today’s historic Senate vote (63-37), two of the five of the Republicans who voted for Justice Kagan were women. We applaud the Obama Administration for nominating their second female appointee to the court, and ensuring that this body more accurately represents our country’s population. The Women’s Media Center will be monitoring media coverage of Justice Elena Kagan’s confirmation and urges outlets to report on today’s landmark decision in a balanced manner.
