In the Spotlight

September 22, 2020
RBG’s passing has hit me hard. She’s someone I admired for so many reasons. She was a women’s rights champion, an indefatigable litigator who radically changed the way women were treated in the workplace and society at large. She was the second woman to ever serve on the US Supreme Court, where she wrote the majority opinion that prevented women from being excluded from publicly-funded institutions (VMI). More recently as the bench grew more conservative, she increasingly wrote scathing dissenting opinions on Voting Rights (Shelby County) and employment discrimination (Ledbetter) that showed even as the underdog, there is always hope and a pathway for a better future.
