drewNancy Drew, that fictional girl detective worshipped by generations of young women, has once again come into our collective consciousness as a role model to Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomeyer. And it turns out to Sandra Day & Ruth Bader Ginsburg as well. In print since 1930, the series by Carolyn Keene with wonderful titles such as the Secret of the Old Clock & the Password to Larkspur Lane, demonstrate that Nancy’s feisty personality & her ability at problem solving doesn’t prevent her from being charming, powdering her nose & driving off in┬áthat blue convertible to solve the world’s problems. A true modern heroine.
