On October 26, the U.S. Senate confirmed Amy McConey Barret as a justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.
An unprecedented historical fact: she is the first woman with school-age children to hold this position, she has 7 children, 2 of them adopted in 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 a brilliant professional at the same time. Two jobs that demand 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 jurisdictional bodies must be totally independent of any partisan vision and place themselves above the political debate.
Heartiest congratulations, Amy Coney Coney.
