This morning I’m reading a biography about Sandra Day O’Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg that I picked up from the local library titled Sisters in Law. It’s a particular accesible read, but there have been a few passages in particular that have struck me, especially given the current climate.
For example, the author writes about Bader Ginsburg’s former professor at Cornell, Robert Cushman…
Life would be “better,” to Ruth’s mentor, if people stopped using the language of patriotism to defend their privileges and the less powerful were free to speak against them.
Indeed, Professor Cushman. Indeed.
