United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (aka “Notorious RBG”) started championing human rights before she even sat on the bench. She was one of nine women in her first-year Harvard Law School class of hundreds, beginning her mark in history and paving the way for future “flaming feminist litigators.”
