Grab your headphones! To honor the life and legacy of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Rebel Girls’ Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls podcast will air its RBG-focused podcast episode on Sept. 22.
The episode focuses on Ruth’s life and career, highlighting:
- How she pursued her dreams of becoming a lawyer – Ruth was one of nine women in her class to be admitted to Harvard Law School, and was once refused admission to a “men only” section of the library
- The dedication to her family life and career – when her husband Marty was diagnosed with cancer, Ruth drove him to his treatments, raised their daughter and continued law school
- Winning her first case, where she highlighted that America’s long and unfortunate history of sex discrimination puts women “not on a pedestal, but in a cage.”
- Her lifelong fight to ban gender discrimination in the workplace
The Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls podcast can be found wherever you get your podcasts or on the Rebel Girls website.
