'I ask no favor for my sex, all I ask of our brethren is that they take their feet off our necks.' Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Hero. Icon. Dissenter.

The exceptional life & career of United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. Ginsburg's formidable legal skills have resulted in five groundbreaking rulings that made great strides towards putting women & men on an equal footing before the law. Justice Ginsburg's steadfast commitment remains, not only for gender equality but for democratic institutions that protect the rights of all citizens. It is not surprising she has become a millennial icon.
