New York magazine Irin Carmon, co-author of the book Infamous RBG, on the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg:
Two visionary advocates, the left-wing feminist Dorothy Kenyon and the queer black theorist Pauli Murray, had long argued that gender discrimination violated the 14th Amendment’s clause on equal protection, which had previously only applied to race. The Supreme Court had never agreed. Not much had come of her ruling a century earlier and prevented a woman from exercising law, because, in fairness, “The greatest destiny and mission of women is to fulfill the noble and benevolent subjects of wife and mother. This is the law of the Creator. In her second card for the Supreme Court, 1973s Limit v. Richardson, Ginsburg would coolly observe that “the method of communication between the Creator and the jurist is never revealed.”
For a remarkable person and a remarkable life.
