Thank you, RBG

 

What did Ruth Bader Ginsburg mean to us? Hope, perseverance, and change – long-lasting change. Women will never again be so shackled by stereotypes and discrimination. RBG methodically took aim at societal expectations and unjust laws designed to limit the potential of women and girls, and she won. Repeatedly.

It seems only fitting that we honor RBG with both mourning and celebration. In life and in death, she is a catalyst pushing us to do everything we can – in personal circles, in our work, in all areas where we have influence, to pick up where RBG left off and carry forth her vision.
