Quotable: Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is one of the OG feminists.  She is the second woman to be appointed to the Supreme Court and is a vocal proponent for gender equality; she has become a shining symbol of feminism and an icon within the movement.

In the midst of her recent vocalization of her support of gay marriage in the midst of a pending supreme court ruling, I thought it appropriate to recognize this truly incredible woman.  Here are a few of my favorite quotes from one of feminism’s original matriarch.

“People ask me sometimes, ‘When will there be enough women in the court?’  And my answer is: When there are nine?”

Ruth Bader Ginsburg

“The decision of whether or not to bear a child is central to a woman’s life, her well being, and her dignity.”

“Who – man or woman, has it all, all at once?  Over my lifespan I think I have had it all.  But in different periods of time, things were rough.  And if you have a caring life partner, you help the other person when that person needs it.”

“My mother told me two things constantly.  One was to be a lady, and the other was to be independent.”

Ruth Bader Ginsburg

“It’s not women’s liberation, it is women’s and men’s liberation.”

 

One. Two. Three. Four. Five.
