“Real change, enduring change, happens one step at a time.” – RBG
Happy Heavenly Birthday. We miss you. We thank you.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Notorious RBG) was an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, serving from 1993 until her death in 2020. She was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1933 and grew up during a time when women faced significant barriers to equality and advancement.
Despite facing discrimination throughout her life, RBG was a trailblazer for women’s rights and gender equality. She graduated from Cornell University in 1954, where she met her future husband, Martin Ginsburg. She later attended Harvard Law School, where she was one of only nine women in a class of over 500.
After graduating from law school, RBG went on to work for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and argued several landmark cases before the Supreme Court, including the case that established the principle of gender equality in the United States.
In 1993, President Bill Clinton appointed RBG to the Supreme Court, making her only the second woman to ever serve on the nation’s highest court. During her time on the bench, she became known for her sharp legal mind, her unwavering commitment to justice and equality, and her fierce dissents in cases where she believed the court was moving in the wrong direction.
Throughout her life, RBG became an icon and a symbol of hope for people around the world who were fighting for justice and equality. Her legacy will continue to inspire generations of Americans to fight for a more just and equitable society.
