Constance Baker Motley Symposium (AM2021)
I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar: The Legacy of Ruth Bader Ginsburg
This program is a discussion on the impact that RBG made through her famous dissents. For instance, her dissent in Ledbetter v. Goodyear has been cited as the catalyst for the Equal Pay Act of 2009 (the Lilly Ledbetter Act). Therefore, even though she was unable to move her fellow justices, her well-reasoned and impassioned dissent caused the Legislative Branch to take a second look at the injustice that was being perpetuated against women and they changed the law.
