As the United States Supreme Court leans increasingly to the right, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s vigorous dissenting opinions and ferocious 20-push-up workouts have earned this tiny 84-year-old intellectual giant the status of rock star and the title of “Notorious RBG.” What many don’t know is Ginsburg’s strategic, trailblazing role in defining gender discrimination law. Still inspired, she refuses to relinquish her passionate duty, steadfastly fighting for equal rights for all citizens.
