A Big Win for Women

Loretta Lynch won confirmation as the nation’s first black female attorney general Thursday from a Senate that forced her to wait more than five months for the title and remained divided to the end.

 

The 56-43 vote was enough to confirm Lynch, who is replacing Eric Holder. This is a big step for women everywhere.

 

Karen Williams Weaver, nominee for Mayor of Flint, commented on the appointment. “This is just one more glass ceiling that has been broken. It’s a long time coming. It gives women everywhere hope. That is one thing we want to restore.”

 

Lynch is viewed as a hard, but extremely fair, prosecutor. It will be her job to ensure things are done right.
