Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Ruth Bader Ginsburg was born on March 15, 1933, Brooklyn, New York, NY. She was an extraordinary women, most called her The Notorious RBG. The life of Ruth was hard but she got through it.
Her older sister, Marylin, died when Ruth was only 14 months old. Ruth's mother, Celia, brought Ruth to the library because Celia wanted her daughter to go to collage unlike her.
In High School, her mother got ill with cancer, and died before Ruth graduated.
Ruth persisted because she knew that her sister and mother were watching from above. She attended Harvard Law School, she was 1 out of 9 women that attended. When her Husband moved to New York, Ruth followed and went to Columbia's Law School. She was the first woman to receive 2 majors. After a couple years, She earned her Law degree and was 1 out of 2 people 1st in their class.
On 1993, she was appointed for the supreme court by Bill Clinton. "A Lady Lawyer? That's crazy!" People would say, but Ruth Kept her head high and kept on walking. In the supreme court, Ruth would wear all of these majestic collars that would go with her robe.
Ruth's legacy was inspirational. She was the 2nd lady in the Supreme court, she was the oldest person to ever serve on the Court, and she got women rights. Ruth fought for women's right to buy property in their name, have a bank account, be in charge of their own medical treatment, and play sports in school. Ruth did many more things, those were only just a few.
Ruth died on September 18, 2020. We will all remember The Notorious RBG, even you and me.
What will happen to her spot on the Supreme Court?
They should wait till after the election, but Trump is trying o push someone through right away. Who ever he chooses, he/she will never be like RBG. Obama never got the chance to do it before the last election, so why does Trump?!
"When I'm sometimes asked 'When will there be enough women on the Supreme Court?' and my answer is: 'When there are nine.' People are shocked. But there'd been nine men, nobody's ever raised a question about that."
