The Inspiring Career Of Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg would not be where she is today if she had listened to other people's expectations of her. For one, her parents wanted her to be a teacher, because it was more "lady-like" than going to law school. Instead, she studied law at Harvard. She was only one of nine women at Harvard Law School, out of a class of 500 people. Despite being at the top of her class, Ginsburg had to transfer to Columbia University to finish her degree because Harvard didn't want to graduate her. She is currently the most successful litigator on the Supreme Court bench.
