Support, Some Relief, Concerns, and a Tribute to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

American_Civil_Liberties_Union_:_Tribute:_The Legacy_of_Ruth_Bader_Ginsburg_and_WRP_Staff Ruth Bader Ginsburg founded the ACLU’s Women’s Rights Project in 1972. See American_Civil_Liberties_Union_:_Womens_Rights . Just recently, on Sept. 25, 2009, a short post was written by Jessica_Valenti_|_Feminist_Author and Executive_Editor_of_Feministing noting Supreme_Court_Justice_Ruth_Bader_Ginsburg_had_been_admitted_to_the_hospital and then a quick update about Justice_Ginsburg_having_been_been_discharged_from_the_hospital and having gone “back to work the same day.” (Both posts at Feministing).
Justice Ginsburg is very much needed on the bench for the important cases in this upcoming term. The fundamentalist conservatives have been emboldened with the retirement of Justice Souter, and seem desperate to roll back women’s rights while the Courts are still heavily populated with Bush-era appointees. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg may be soft spoken, but it was she who founded the ACLU’s Women’s Rights Project in 1972. There is more about the ACLU’s Women’s Rights Project at http://www.aclu.org/womensrights/index.html I do hope Justice Ginsburg is careful to recover fully and not over-do it. She is a bright shining star on the Supreme Court.

    Yes, and we need more Justices like her. When are you going to write another post? Keep up the civil liberties advocacy. Now some shameless self promotion: See my blog post about model diversity
