Rebecca Young, Managing Attorney of Collaborative Courts at the San Francisco Public Defender’s Office, penned this Op Ed which appeared in 48 Hills: RIP, the Notorious RBG – reflecting on the life and work of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who served as a Justice of the United States Supreme Court from 1993 until her passing on September 18, 2020.

“How is it that one woman, one petite woman with a mighty intellect and a grit true to her Brooklyn roots became not just a role model, but a revered symbol of the struggle for women’s equality? The ironic answer is that she did so by challenging laws that discriminated against men on the basis of gender. Justice Ginsburg’s career prior to being confirmed for the United States Supreme Court created significant legal advances for women by fighting for the rights of men.” – rebecca young
