Musings – on the editor’s mind
September 23, 2020
My friend Sherry Chavers encouraged me to reflect on Ruth Bader Ginsberg in this column. The world has changed so much since Ginsberg graduated at the top of her class from Columbia Law School in 1959. No New York City law firm would hire her as a lawyer. Back then women were secretaries, school teachers and librarians.
If you are a grandparent, consider your adult life and that of your mother’s. If you have grandparents or were born after 1970, have you learned, and really absorbed, how different your life is from Ginsberg’s generation or her mother’s or your female elders?
