When Elena Kagan is confirmed by the Senate and becomes a justice of the Supreme Court, she will join Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg in making history. Three women, fully one third of the court, will be serving at the same time. They are likely to change the Supreme Court in ways that go far beyond even their numbers. These are not only three highly intelligent and accomplished women, they are also "wise" women. They are "wise" both in the sense meant by Sotomayor when she made her famous comment about "wise Latinas," and in the biblical sense, as wisdom is often personified as female and a public advocate for justice. "Wisdom calls aloud in the street, she raises her voice in the public squares." (Proverbs 1:20)Full post via On Faith.
