RBG: Lessons in Resilience, Advocacy, and Never Giving Up

𝑯𝒂𝒑𝒑𝒚 𝑩𝒊𝒓𝒕𝒉𝒅𝒂𝒚 𝒇𝒐𝒓𝒆𝒗𝒆𝒓 𝒊𝒄𝒐𝒏, 𝑹𝑩𝑮! 🕯️🎂🕯️

Ruth Bader Ginsberg is one of my personal heroes. I know many of you feel the same.

Here are a few RBG facts that I find inspiring:

🔥 She’s a badass! While she was attending law school with her husband, he became sick with cancer. She took care of him and their infant daughter, attended classes, helped him keep up with his schoolwork, and made the Harvard Law Review... all at the same time!

🔥 She graduated from Columbia Law School tied for first in her class. She was recommended to clerk for Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter but he replied that he wasn’t ready to hire a woman.

🔥 When she was pregnant with her second child, she wore baggy clothes until her contract as a professor was finalized because she was concerned about pregnancy discrimination.

🔥 She wasn’t appointed to the Supreme Court until she was 60 years old. Proof positive that it’s never to late to realize your dreams.

🔥 She was an unapologetic liberal on the court. Yet she didn't let that define her opinions of others. Justice Antonin Scalia was a close personal friend in spite of his significantly different and very conservative legal philosophies.

🔥 She failed her driving test 5 times! Proof positive that you can be a genius in one area while having significant weaknesses in another. [𝘕𝘰𝘵𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘴𝘦𝘭𝘧: 𝘛𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦'𝘴 𝘩𝘰𝘱𝘦 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘺𝘦𝘵!]

🔥 She was given the nickname ‘𝙉𝙤𝙩𝙤𝙧𝙞𝙤𝙪𝙨 𝙍𝘽𝙂’ by a law student Shana Knizhnik, who wanted to juxtapose Ginsberg’s small size and trailblazing force.

🔥 And of course, she was a tireless advocate for women’s rights, equal pay, and gender equality as reflected in her many celebrated opinions and dissents on the high court.

What is it about RBG that inspires you?
