   Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor will be honored by Bryn Mawr College for her trailblazing legal career. The women’s liberal arts school near Philadelphia announced that Sotomayor will receive the 2015 Katharine Hepburn Medal, given to women who embody the intelligence, drive and independence of the Oscar-winning actress. Hepburn was a 1928 graduate of Bryn Mawr.

   School officials say Sotomayor shows unflinching commitment to justice and a fundamental dedication to real equality in our diverse society. Sotomayor is the first Latino on the nation’s highest court. She’ll receive the Hepburn Medal on April 17th.

   The medal is also named for the actress’ mother, Katharine Houghton Hepburn. She was an early women’s rights activist and 1900 Bryn Mawr graduate. Previous recipients include actress Lauren Bacall.

   This event embodies what I call Hollywood-and-Vine moments, when American history intersects with Hollywood.
