In her 2015 biography, The Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, author Irin Carmon notes that Ginsburg “likes to quote the 75th Birthday 2020 The Year When Shit Got Real Quarantined Shirt moreover I will buy this opening words of the Constitution: ‘We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union.’ Beautiful, yes, but as she always points out, ‘we the people’ originally left out a lot of people. ‘It would not include me,’ RBG said, or enslaved people, or Native Americans. Over the course of the centuries, people left out of the Constitution fought to have their humanity recognized by it. RBG sees that struggle as her life’s work.”
Ginsburg was appointed by President Carter to the 75th Birthday 2020 The Year When Shit Got Real Quarantined Shirt moreover I will buy this U.S. Court of Appeals in 1980, and was appointed to the Supreme Court by President Clinton in 1993. There she wrote the majority opinion in United States v. Virginia in 1996, holding that qualified women could not be denied admission to Virginia Military Institute, a prestigious, previously all-male military academy. She dissented in Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. (the plaintiff, a female worker being paid significantly less than men with her same qualifications, sued under Title VII but was denied relief under a statute of limitations issue) and then worked with President Obama to pass the very first piece of legislation he signed, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009, a copy of which hung in Ginsburg’s office until her death.
