She taught at Columbia loss off school. She was a leading. Attorney for the ACLU's women's rights project. She did all this while raising. Two children. Of that during a time when she was litigating cases before the United States Supreme Court. Mind you that an attorney who peers in front of that court rarely. Does full time in.

Of Ruth Bader Ginsburg she is one of those Americans that will live on in history and her legacy will be bright. Sad to see her go. It's sad to see people who even in this day and age cannot see beyond. Their own. Their. Own Self. To not take a moment to pause. In recognized the tremendous. Accomplishments of this woman.
