In recent years, women’s empowerment has been able to rise to the forefront, thanks to the work of pioneering women such as Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Following her ascension to the US Supreme Court in 1993, Ruth dedicated her life to fighting for civil justice, regularly speaking up for women’s rights as well as pushing for equal rights for minorities and the LBGTQ citizens.
This fight helped Ruth become somewhat of a pop-culture icon to millennials, and this year she was featured in two films, ‘RBG’ and ‘On the Basis of Sex’. These films helped bring her incredible work to more people around the world, helping to empower even more women.
From her early days as one of just nine women studying at Harvard Law School in 1957, Ruth Bader Ginsburg continuously strived to overcome sexism. In 1971, she played an essential role in the launch of the Women’s Rights Project of the American Civil Liberties Union, as well as advocating for the passage of the Equal Rights Amendment.
Ginsburg’s entire life has been dedicated to empowering women, and despite the sad news of her death last week at the age of 87, her legacy will live on, inspiring a future generation of women activists. Her work has helped pave the way for equality, giving young girls today a stronger start in life, allowing them to enjoy a fairer and more level playing field.
