Presentation Overview by Dr Mary Atwell
Dr. Mary Atwell’s presentation “Ruth Bader Ginsburg: Advocate for Equal Justice Under Law”  will reflect on Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s most significant contributions during the half century of her career.

"As a practicing lawyer, a legal scholar, and a member of the Supreme Court, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg defined gender equality and justice.  Her writing, her arguments before the Court, her opinions, and her dissents advanced the constitutional status of women and gender minorities.  This presentation and discussion will reflect on some of her most significant contributions during the half century of her career ".
