“She was a champion of the law. I really looked up to her. She was one of the reasons I am pursuing politics and law. I am afraid of what the future could look like for body autonomy if the Supreme Court is all conservative judges. I guess time will tell.”
– Megan Piasecki ’22, pre-law student

“My life, as well as the lives of so many Americans, is so much better because of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She had a vision of a society in which equality and fairness existed, and through her legal advocacy, brilliant strategizing, and judicial rulings, R.B.G. helped to make the U.S. a more perfect union.

I hope we realize that with her passing under the current circumstances, this legacy, this ‘normal,’ is under threat. Women and men alike need to recognize just what R.B.G. helped accomplish and what is at stake today. She’d be the first to say that we still have more work to do to reach equality for all, particularly because gender intersects with race, class, sexuality and other identity markers. Thank you, R.B.G. I am so grateful to you and very saddened by your death.”
– Lisa Baglione, Ph.D., political science professor

“Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg proved to the world that women can do it all. The U.S. cannot be a democracy if one leader’s death can change our country’s course. Tomorrow and everyday, I will wake up and only attempt to do an ounce of what Ruth Bader Ginsburg did for the world. Thank you, Justice Ginsburg. I am forever indebted to you.”
– Maddie Demarco ’22, political science student, Women’s Leadership Initiative co-president

“Justice Ginsburg affected my life, teaching and scholarship. She was an eloquent advocate for reproductive rights based on equality, not privacy. Her defense of voting rights for Black Americans – the dissent in Shelby v. Holder – is, for me, the best of what the U.S. has to offer: well-evidenced claims based on history presented in clear, unwavering prose. She was one of the most intelligent, well-prepared, and incisive justices in U.S. Supreme Court history.”
– Susan Liebell, Ph.D., associate professor of political science and pre-law advisor
