WREN Statement on Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
by WREN Staff on Sep 19, 2020
The Women’s Rights and Empowerment Network joins our community in mourning the loss of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Justice Ginsburg’s influence on this country cannot be overstated. During her decades-long tenure on the Supreme Court and as a litigator for the ACLU, she reshaped the legal landscape of our country to protect women and all people from gender-based discrimination. Her brilliant legal mind, her unwavering commitment to equality for women and all people, and her tenacity have made this country more free and equal for all of us. In solidarity with all our partners and members across the state of South Carolina, we resolve to continue that fight for equality and justice. As a tireless defender of reproductive freedom, Justice Ginsburg earned her rest, and we resolve to continue the fight for bodily autonomy for all people.
