Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Legacy Still Leads the Way
2023 International Women’s Day Event
Faegre Drinker proudly celebrates International Women’s Day, a day to praise the social, economic, cultural and political accomplishments of women around the world. In celebration, please join us for a presentation by attorney and acclaimed author Amanda L. Tyler as she discusses her relationship and experiences with a monumental figure in our nation’s legal history, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
With inspiring stories from the book she co-wrote with Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Justice, Justice Thou Shalt Pursue: A Life’s Work Fighting for a More Perfect Union, Amanda L. Tyler traces her mentor’s lifelong pursuit of gender equality and unwavering commitment to achieving “a more perfect union." In a more personal vein, Tyler explores the impact of Ginsburg’s particular leadership style on the lives of those who worked with and for her — from her exacting and meticulous standards to her deep integrity, personal warmth and generosity as a mentor and friend — and considers the emergence of “RBG the icon” as a “heroine of power, authority and dignity” for a new generation. Attendees will receive a copy of the book co-written by Amanda L. Tyler and Ruth Bader Ginsberg after the program.
Amanda L. Tyler is the Shannon Cecil Turner Professor of Law at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law. In 2020, she received the law school’s Rutter Award for Teaching Distinction. She was previously a member of the George Washington University Law School faculty and has been a visiting professor at Harvard Law School, New York University School of Law and the University of Virginia School of Law.
