Radio-TV Interview Report, "Elena Kagan—Fifty and Fabulous," July 7, 2010

Fifty and Fabulous by Elena Kagan

She won’t be the first Jew on the High Court, nor will she be the first woman, but if confirmed, Elena Kagan could become a symbol of what today’s 50-something women are – powerful and proud of it. Sonia Fuentes, a founder of the National Organization for Women (NOW), says, “She’s a brilliant woman who at fifty is bringing a wealth of incredible credentials to the Court. What she would bring, if appointed, is that she would be the 3rd woman on the Court out of nine—that would be a first.” Sonia Fuentes is a feminist activist, public speaker and attorney and was the first woman attorney in the Office of the General Counsel at the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission). She is the author of “Eat First -- You Don't Know What They'll Give You, The Adventures of an Immigrant Family and Their Feminist Daughter.” Contact her at (941) 379-6215 (FL); spfuentes@comcast.net
