Ruth Bader Ginsburg Quotes
Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, which makes her the second female justice in the country’s history.

Encouraged by her mother to embrace education, Ginsburg enrolled at Harvard Law School as one of nine females in a class size of approximately 500 students. She transferred to Columbia Law School after her husband took a job in New York City, becoming the first woman to be on two major law reviews— the Columbia Law Review and the Harvard Law Review.

Ginsburg’s start to her legal career was not ideal; being a mother to a young child, a wife, and Jewish at a dangerous time in our history, she struggled to find a job. Eventually, Ginsburg became an associate director of the Columbia Law School Project on International Procedure and spent time in Sweden where she began to develop more insight on gender equality.


Back in the States, Ginsburg became a professor at Rutgers Law School and was one of less than twenty female professors in the country. Ginsburg has devoted most of her career to fighting for women’s rights as a constitutional principle.

In 1972, she co-founded the Women’s Rights Project at the American Civil Liberties Union and between 1973 and 1976, she argued six gender discrimination cases before the Supreme Court and won five of them. In 2009, Forbes named her among the 100 Most Powerful Women. Here are our Top 12 Powerful Ruth Bader Ginsburg Quotes for you.
