Let's all rise to give Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg a standing ovation. Endearingly known as Notorious RBG, she's a pioneer in her field with a great sense of humor and an appreciation for the arts. When asked what her alternative dream job is in an interview with New York Public Radio WQXR, Ginsburg revealed her wish to be an opera diva. For the record, we think her actual career path is impressive, too.
She's accomplished quite a bit. In 1956, when Harvard Law first admitted women, Ginsburg was one of nine in a class of 500. And it also happened to be right after the birth of her daughter, Jane. Undoubtedly, the simultaneity of these happy life events shaped her groundbreaking career. In this video from The Atlantic, Ginsburg discusses her own experiences as a working mother.
Speaking to work/life balance, she says, "Each part of my life gave me respite from the other." Ginsburg goes on to explain that this duality empowered her to fight against discrimination, administer justice, and lead a fulfilling life. As always, she fires us up with her poignant language and relatable anecdotes. To listen to the trailblazer herself, watch the video below.
