Another Reason to Love Sonia Sotomayor and Sesame Street

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

On a recent episode of Sesame Street, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor let Abby Cadabby and girls everywhere know that while pretending to be a princess is fun, it is not a career. Instead they can and should aspire to be a teacher, lawyer, doctor, engineer, or even a scientist. “A career," Sotomayor says, "is something that you train for and prepare for and plan on doing for a long time.”

And donning her judicial robe, Sotomayor's presence and wise words lets girls know they can pursue any career they want, even a career as a judge. 

Thank you, Sotomayor, and thanks Sesame Street!

  1. Sesame Street has always been the coolest!

  2. This is why I love Sesame Street. I make sure to instill this into my daughter, as well as my son. And since I consider myself a Computer Engineer, my daughter is pretty infatuated with that. She wants to "build cool robots" like me, she says. And that makes me smile.

  3. I will not feel truly accomplished until I make an appearance on Sesame Street. Awesome message from Justice Sotomayor.

    1. You will definitely one day make an appearance! You'll be reading the characters a portion of one of your books and telling them the history of the women's movement. :)
