May Her Memory Be A Revolution: The Life & Legacy of RGB
How do we remember Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg? Did her Judaism shape her understanding of law, and where was her presence felt beyond her career as a Supreme Court Justice? This three-part series, organized by the J, the Program in Jewish Studies at Rice University, the Center for the Study of Women, Gender & Sexuality at Rice University, and the University of Houston Jewish Studies Program, will bring together scholars, activists, public servants, and attorneys to discuss Justice Ginsburg’s impact on American society.
December 8: The Making of Notorious RBG
Drs. Laura Oren and Leandra Zarnow, University of Houston, in conversation with Dr. Mark Goldberg
This presentation will address the early legal career of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, exploring formative influences, her first years practicing, and her pioneer work with the Women's Rights Project of the ACLU. What will emerge is a portrait of a determined young feminist lawyer who shaped the field of women and law irreversibly.
