Remembering Ruth Bader Ginsburg
“Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was, and will remain, a steadfast reminder that the fight for equality can never rest, even as those who fight hardest for this ideal must. Her death brings a national mourning, as we realize we have lost the best of us. She was patient as she worked for incremental change for gender equality, grounded in the law. We admire her for her life’s work but also for how she lived her life: with respect for those holding different views, with dignity in the face of opposition and with hope—always with hope.”—Smith College President Kathleen McCartney
“I suppose if I had any talent that God could have given me, I would have been a diva. But since I am a monotone I went to law school.”
