U.S Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is an inspiration in her own right. She’s a hard-working woman who proved that dedication pays off when she was appointed Supreme Court Justice in 1993. She is also a strong advocate for the advancement of women’s rights, and wants women to know that there’s never a better time to chase their dreams!
When she accepted the Radcliffe Medal from Harvard’s Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, the 82-year-old was asked what advice she could offer to women today, “Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you,” she said.
She compared today with the 70s, a time when she was facing discrimination based on her dreams, and mentioned that “Men were the doers in the world and women were the stay-at-home types.” Ultimately she said “Young women today have a great advantage, and it is that there are no more closed doors. That was basically what the 70s was all about. Opening doors that had been closed to women.”
It’s so inspiring that Ruth Bader Ginsburg got to where she is today in the face of adversity and proved that women can be powerful bosses! Read more about her speech here!
