TOPIC: Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Ruth Bader Ginsburg 2 Weeks, 4 Days ago  
This unique lady's cancer battle continues - though she continues her outstanding presence and role in the US Supreme Court.

Clinton's best decision was to appoint this brilliant legal brain to America's highest court (c30 years ago) - and her verdicts/decisions have changed the world.

Perhaps the US's finest authority on the legal niceties of the US Constitution - and a fearless and conceptual exponent of fairness.


Even before Trump got to the White House, she had seen through the camouflage - and said she'd move to New Zealand, if he was elected.

Although her verdict on Trump was correct - she later apologied for her remarks. Trump is unable to remove Ginsburg - who is getting close to 90.

Although highly qualified - first in her class, at an Ivy League university - RBG couldn't get a job.

Because she was Jewish, a mother and pregnant - and this discrimination seemed to interest her, early on.

Her humble beginnings too - and her cases, as an advocate, changed the way America worked. As well as here - so did her verdicts as a Judge.


When an advocate, she represented a female naval officer who was refused US Navy marital accommodation - because she was married to a male civilian.

Even though her male colleagues were provided this, as a matter of course, for their civilian wives and families.

Consequently, the US military (and many other organisations/bodies) had to drastically change many of their discriminatory practices.


We, in the UK, have had to follow the RBG judgments/victories - perhaps unwittingly - although our political system is still skewed in favour of the privileged.

A high percentage of the Boris cabinet is privately educated - although his party is making good progress in appointing women to senior posts, and those from ethnic minorities.

Not much interest again - in my thread!

But those in same-sex marriages should be very grateful to her.

Many developed countries followed suit.


The CofE is confused - not RBG...
