Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Supreme Court discussed on Work in Progress with Sophia Bush

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Before, we start today's episode. I wanted to just take a moment to check in with all of you and. Task you to check in with your sauce because. Let's be honest. It's been a really. Rough an emotional few days. We lost someone that. I'm not quite sure I have the words to do justice to who she was. Who she was as a human as a woman as an activist and humanitarian and a literal game changer in the course of human history and the rights of women as a wife, a mother her. And so many other things to so many people. I'm talking about the legendary. Ruth Bader GINSBURG WHO Very. Sadly passed away at the age of eighty seven years old on Friday evening. And while the notorious RPG accomplished so much in her life including becoming the second female justice of only four to ever be confirmed to the Supreme Court. To me and to so many others one of her greatest accomplishments and an enormous part of her legacy is how she was a champion for women and really for humanity. She spent her entire life advocating for the advancement of gender equality and women's rights because women's rights are human rights. She stood for integrity and strength and justice for all and was truly a beacon of light in many many difficult eras. This is a huge loss for us as a community. As a community of women and as a community of individuals who truly believe that all humans are and deserve to be treated. As equals. I think it's incredibly important for each of us to take the time that we need to mourn and to feel our grief. Over. This great loss. I also believe that RPG would want us to keep fighting. Fighting against injustice in all its forms fighting for change and to continue to listen to and learn from one another. One of the best ways that we can do that that we can carry on her legacy and work to make meaningful changes is to get out there and vote. So while I could probably go on for an entire podcast episode or two or three or seventeen about how brilliant and powerful and inspiring. RPG was. I feel confident that she would rather her legacy live on in the changes that we make forward. So for today, I'm simply going to say thank you. Thank you so very much. To the honorable Justice Ginsburg, you are sorely missed you will never be forgotten. And we will take this heartbreaking moment and turn it.
