Girl Scouts Apologize After Recognizing Amy Coney Barrett for Becoming 5th Woman to Serve on Supreme Court

Girl Scouts of the USA organization has issued an apology after receiving backlash for publicly congratulating Justice Amy Coney Barrett for becoming the fifth woman appointed to the Supreme Court of the United States.

On Wednesday, the group tweeted portraits of all the women who have been chosen to sit on America’s highest court, writing, “Congratulations Amy Coney Barrett on becoming the 5th woman appointed to the Supreme Court since its inception in 1789.”
