Thank You Ruth Bader Ginsberg
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg left her body over the weekend after a life well lived.
She made an immense contribution to our society by standing up for citizens of all genders to have equal rights under the law.
After experiencing discrimination as a Jew and a woman early in her life, she used her skills as a lawyer reforming the laws of the USA to be gender-equal. First as the director of the Women's Rights Project of the American Civil Liberties Union (where she argued six cases before the Supreme Court), then as a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, and finally as a Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, where she served for 27 years.
I appreciate Justice Ginsberg for a lifetime of dedication to liberating all of us from the oppression of discrimination, opening doors for each one of us to be more free as human beings. She rose above the discrimination she experienced in her own life, to make our entire country aware of the discriminations that were happening in her time, and used her skill and knowledge of the law to change it for all citizens.
