Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 1933 - 2020

Friday, the 18th of September, women all over the world lost a voice of passion and reason in the struggle to advance gender equality, and, in fact, equality for all irrespective of gender, race, ethnicity, disability, or sexual orientation. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, more affectionately known as ‘Notorious’ RBG among millennials, laid the foundations of jurisprudence on equality throughout her eminent career as an activist, legal scholar, jurist and Supreme Court justice. Her determination to achieve gender equality has left us a legacy of victories to build on even as we face backlash from a hardened right wing and fundamentalists across the globe. The Centre for Global Women’s Studies joins women and all those striving for equality to mourn the loss of RBG, a titan among us. We commit to continuing our contribution, through our teaching, research, and community engagement, to the ongoing fight to realise equality for all and a just society.
