The notorious R.B.G.
15 March 1933 - 18 September 2020
A time to reflect on the life and legacy of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the future of the US Supreme Court
The tributes pour in:
- "As part of the Supreme Court’s four-member liberal wing, she did her most memorable work in dissent." - Adam Liptak, The New York Times.
- "Barely five feet tall and weighing 100 pounds, Justice Ginsburg drew comments for years on her fragile appearance. But she was tough.... - Linda Greenhouse, The New York Times.
- "She spent her extraordinary career fighting for women’s rights and ensuring the promise of the constitution applied to all." - Moira Donegan, The Guardian.
- "Our nation has lost a jurist of historic stature." - Chief Justice John Roberts.
In her own words:
“Did you always want to be a judge” or, more exorbitantly, “a Supreme Court justice?” Schoolchildren visiting me at the court, as they do at least weekly, ask that question more than any other. It is a sign of huge progress made. To today’s youth, judgeship as an aspiration for a girl is not at all outlandish.
This special afterwork will open with a presentation about Ruth Bader Ginsburg, followed by a time for shared reflection on the life she lived and the changed nation and world she leaves behind. RSVP for directions on how to attend.
