Wishing Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg a belated Happy 82nd Birthday!!!
The only woman currently serving on the US Supreme Court, Justice Ginsburg exercises influence over the laws that govern the United States. Justice Ginsburg helps make the decisions of the highest court in the US, making her not only one of the most influential, but one of the most powerful women in the world.
Even before becoming the second woman ever appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court, Justice Ginsburg broke countless legal and professional barriers for women. While a student, she was elected to the Harvard Law Review, a feat she repeated at Columbia Law School. She was later the first female tenured professor at Colombia Law School.
Later, she set new professional precedents for women, as she was turned her attention to their unequal treatment under the law. Justice Ginsburg is a voice for gender equality and civil rights.
Her decisions and opinions provide legal precedent for the US now and for generations to come.
