Program Title: Ruth Bader Ginsburg - Gender Equality
Description: Legal battles for gender equality didn’t begin with the Women’s Movement of the 1960s. But it laid the groundwork for the historic 1972 Supreme Court decision that made gender discrimination unconstitutional. That case was successfully argued by then-38-year old Brooklyn-born attorney Ruth Bader Ginsburg. It set precedent for another ruling a few years later that men should also be eligible for their wives’ survivor benefits. She won five out of the six gender discrimination cases she argued before the Supreme Court.

Featured Speakers/Guests: Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a trailblazing force for equality and social justice. She was director of the ACLU Women’s Rights Project. In 1993, she was appointed to the Supreme Court. She died on September 18 at the age of 87. Her dying wish was that her replacement not be confirmed until a new president has been installed
