The Remarkable Life of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Conversation with Washburn Law Dean Carla Pratt For The Movement

    • Government

In this episode, we pay tribute to the groundbreaking and iconic life of the “Notorious RBG,” Justice Joan Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who left an indelible jurisprudential legacy of gender equality, civil rights, voting rights, and dignity for all people. Through her work as a law professor and head of the American Civil Liberties Union Women’s Rights Project, her appointment by President Jimmy Carter to the federal bench and her elevation in 1993 to the U.S. Supreme Court by President Bill Clinton, Ginsburg has been referred to as the most important woman lawyer in the history of the Republic. In honoring Justice Ginsburg, we are joined by one the few Black women to lead one of the Nation’s 204 law schools, Howard University School of Law alumna and current Washburn University School of Law Dean Carla Pratt. We discuss Ginsburg’s impact on the Supreme Court as an advocate and a jurist and explore the comparisons between Justice Thurgood Marshall’s work on racial equality and Justice Ginsburg’s work on gender equality.

The host for this episode is Clint Odom, NUL Senior Vice President of Policy & Advocacy.

From the National Urban League, For The Movement discusses persistent policy, social, and civil rights issues affecting communities of color.
