Ruth Bader Ginsburg (March 15, 1933)
Ruth Bader Ginsburg is definitely one of my all-time heroic people. Her struggle to become a lawyer when women were scarcely tolerated in the field, her personal triumphs over many difficulties, her legal accomplishments, and her outlook as a Supreme Court Justice all have my highest admiration. Did Jewish values help to inspire her to overcome prejudice and barriers? I'd like to think so.
