NWLC Congratulates Sen. Dianne Feinstein, First Woman Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee

Yesterday, Senator Dianne Feinstein of California became the first woman to serve as the Ranking Member on the Senate Judiciary Committee. As she noted in her statement, Senator Feinstein was elected to the Senate in the “Year of the Woman,” making her leadership on this critically important committee especially meaningful.
With her commitment to fairness, the rule of law, and the Constitution, we can think of no more fitting successor to Senator Patrick Leahy, a tireless champion for justice.
