On October 26, the U.S. Senate confirmed Amy McConey Barrett as a justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.
An unprecedented historical fact: she is the first woman with school-age children to hold that position, has 7 children, 2 of them adopted from Haiti, and the youngest child with Down syndrome whom she described as the family's favorite. This reflects that his appointment has little to do with quotas or ideologies. Her appointment is the result of a life, of information, of a heart and a head where the first thing is love, courage and human value... An extraordinary woman with that plus that motherhood brings her, and an extra plus for a special motherhood like hers.
From Women of the World we celebrate her appointment and openly show our admiration for a mother of Women of the World. and brilliant professional at the same time. Two jobs that require a lot of dedication and that are both key to society.
She is a brave, firm woman of strong convictions that have earned her, of course, all kinds of attacks. But it is precisely these convictions, together with her education, that push her to distance herself from any kind of discrimination or attempt to impose her beliefs on others and to defend her own beliefs. that judicial bodies must be totally independent of any partisan vision and placed above the political debate.
Congratulations from the bottom of my heart, Amy Coney Barret.
