Before Justice Ginsburg was the Notorious RBG, she was a self-proclaimed "flaming feminist litigator." As the co-founder of the ACLU Women's Rights Project, she helped fight for the legal recognition of gender equality — while giving credit to important work that came before her, including of black queer theorist and legal scholar Pauli Murray. She brought those same values to her work as a justice, whether in the majority in cases like U.S. v. Virginia or, more often at the end of her life, in dissent in cases like Shelby County v. Holder.
Learn how Ginsburg's own life experiences, from pregnancy discrimination to an egalitarian marriage, shaped her jurisprudence on gender and sexuality, racial justice, voting rights and beyond.
The authors will be joined by current president of ABA, Patricia Lee Refo, and past president, Paulette Brown, to discuss Ginsburg’s influence on Supreme Jurisprudence.
