What a bad year this is.

As a young woman I am so so worried for women with young daughters. She was a bedrock of support for our rights in the Uniter States.

Below are just a fraction of the works this amazing woman has done for our working rights, education rights, financial rights, reproductive rights, health care rights and rights to safety.

Weinberger v. Weisenfeld, 420 U.S. 636. Ginsburg, on behalf of the Women’s Rights Project, successfully argues that a provision of the Social Security Act providing for sex-based distinctions in the award of social security benefits is unconstitutional.

Corning Glass Works v. Brennan, 417 U.S. 188. The Court for the first time considers an Equal Pay Act claim based on an employer paying women less than men for the same work, determining that the wage difference between Corning’s female inspectors and male inspectors violates the Equal Pay Act. Ginsburg authors an amicus brief.

Pittsburgh Press v. Pittsburgh Commission on Human Relations, 413 U.S. 376. The Court holds that application of a municipal prohibition on employers’ use of sex-segregated “Male Help Wanted” and “Female Help Wanted” columns, to a newspaper that published these columns did not violate the publisher’s First Amendment rights because the ads constituted commercial speech, and concerned activity – sex-based preferences in hiring – that was illegal. On behalf of the Women’s Rights Project, Ginsburg co-authors an amicus brief in the case.

Frontiero v. Richardson, 411 U.S. 677. In this case, the first argued before the Supreme Court by Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the Court strikes down a federal statute that automatically grants male members of the uniformed forces housing and benefits for their wives, but requires female members to demonstrate the “actual dependency” of their husbands to qualify for the same benefits. Four Justices conclude that laws differentiating by sex are inherently suspect and subject to strict judicial scrutiny

Los Angeles Department of Water and Power v. Manhart, 435 U.S. 702.On behalf of the Women’s Rights Project, Ginsburg co-authors an amicus brief for this case in which the Court holds that requiring female workers to make larger pension fund contributions than their male counterparts violates Title VII.

Wengler v. Druggists Mutual Insurance Co., 446 U.S. 142.The Court strikes down a state law denying widowers worker’s compensation benefits upon the work-related death of their wives unless they prove dependency or incapacity, while granting widows such benefits automatically. Ginsburg, on behalf of the Women’s Rights Project, co-authors an amicus brief in the case.

M.L.B v. S.L.J., 519 U.S. 102.The Court, in an opinion by Justice Ginsburg, holds that a state may not deny a parent the right to appeal termination of parental rights because poverty prevents her paying for the record; the state must supply the record itself. The Court finds the Mississippi statute in question to violate the equal protection and due process clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment.

Pennsylvania State Police v. Suders, 542 U.S. 129. Justice Ginsburg authors the opinion, and holds that where a plaintiff has been forced to quit her job by an official act of her employer related to sexual harassment, an employer may not defend against a Title VII claim by showing that it took reasonable care to prevent and correct sexually harassing behavior, and that the employee unreasonably failed to take advantage of such opportunities to prevent harm. The Women’s Rights Project joins an amicus brief.

Coleman v. Maryland Court of Appeals, 566 U.S. 30. The Court holds that the Eleventh Amendment bars suits against state employers for violating the “self-care” provision of the FMLA. (The court had upheld the abrogation of state immunity for enforcement of the “family care” provision in 2003 in Nevada v. Hibbs). Justice Ginsburg files a spirited dissent, arguing that both provisions were intended to address related problems arising from a documented history of employment discrimination against women based on stereotyped assumptions about their roles as mothers and caregivers—a position advanced by the ACLU in an amicus brief.

Vance v. Ball State University, 133 S. Ct. 2434, 570 U.S. ___. In a five to four decision, the Court rules that in holding an employer liable under Title VII for a supervisor’s sexual harassment, a person will only be considered a “supervisor” if the employer has formally authorized him or her to take tangible employment action against the victim. The Court defines “tangible employment action” to mean “a significant change in employment status,” such as hiring, firing, and failing to promote. In a vigorous dissent, Justice Ginsburg criticizes the majority for being out of touch with modern workplace realities and weakening workers’ protection from harassment.

Sessions v. Morales-Santana, 137 S.Ct. 1678. The Court holds that Section 1409(c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which establishes a physical presence requirement for children of unwed U.S. citizen fathers—but not mothers—violates the Equal Protection Clause of the Fifth Amendment. Justice Ginsburg’s majority opinion rejects the purported justifications for the sex-based distinction as resting solely on gendered assumptions about parental responsibility, citing the ACLU’s amicus brief.

Cleveland Board of Education v. LaFleur, 414 U.S. 632. The Court finds unconstitutional a Cleveland School Board rule, requiring women to take unpaid maternity leaves after the first trimester of pregnancy because of a conclusive presumption that pregnant women are no longer able to work. The Court further invalidates a section of the rule making a teacher ineligible to return to work until her child was three-months old. Ginsburg co-authors an amicus brief in the case.

**Geduldig v. Aiello, 417 U.S. 484.**On behalf of the Women’s Rights Project, Ginsburg co-authors an amicusbrief that argues that laws discriminating on the basis of pregnancy make sex-based distinctions and should be evaluated under heightened scrutiny. The Court holds that a disability insurance program that denies benefits for disabilities resulting from pregnancy does not violate the equal protection clause, as it does not involve discrimination on the basis of sex, but discrimination between “pregnant and non-pregnant persons.”

Califano v. Goldfarb, 430 U.S. 199.In this Women’s Rights Project case, argued by Ginsburg, the Court invalidates sex-based distinctions in the payment of social security survivor benefits, finding these distinctions to be based on archaic assumptions regarding women’s dependency.

**General Electric Co. v. Gilbert, 429 U.S.125.**Ginsburg authors an amicusbrief to the Court, arguing that the exclusion of pregnancy-related conditions from a private employer’s disability plan violates Title VII. The Court concludes that pregnancy-based discrimination is not sex discrimination. Congress will override this decision in 1978, through passage of the Pregnancy Discrimination Act.

Gonzales v. Carhart (Carhart II) / Gonzales v. Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Inc., 550 U.S. 124.The ACLU files amicusbriefs in both of these cases, urging the Court to invalidate the “Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003” because it fails to include an exception to preserve the health of the mother. The Court upholds the federal ban finding that in the face of “medical uncertainty” as to whether a health exception will ever be necessary, the State’s interest in “promoting respect for human life at all stages in the pregnancy” can outweigh a woman’s interest in protecting her health. In dissent, Justice Ginsburg writes that this ruling undermines a core holding of Roe v. Wadeand Carhart I: that women’s health must always be paramount.

Thank you for posting this. Seeing this news made me want to go to sleep for the rest of 2020, but that's not what RGB was about. I'll wallow this weekend and get my head right for Monday and whatever we can do in uncertain times for each other.

[–]TigreImpossibileFDS Apprentice31 points32 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Thank you for putting that together, I guess it demonstrates the extraordinary privilege of our time that I'm flabbergasted most of these even needed to be argued. RBG was a truly extraordinary human being.

[–]HealingGumsMurphy01Throwaway Account4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Thanks for posting those cases. Today on Democracy Now! Amy Goodman was talking about RBG for the entire hour. She interviewed Mr. Weisenfeld. He was a widower who sued to get Social Security survivor benefits that his deceased wife had paid into as a school teacher. RBG represented him. She said that Mr. Weisenfeld was "her favorite plaintiff". They became friends and RBG officiated Mr. Weisenfeld's second marriage, at the Supreme Court, and also the marriage of his son. Which is very cool.

[–]mizmoxiev4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Shes my literal hero. Today is hard. Her sacrifices are not in vain.. I'm still sad :-(

[–]whatismedicineFDS Newbie338 points339 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a Jewish woman who triumphed at a time when both were shameful. She went to school all day, cared for a sick husband all night, and took care of a small child. She couldn’t get a job despite being the top of her class. She married a man who spoke of her like she walked on water. She changed the course of history. She is the highest value person I can imagine. I feel lucky to have shared the same microcosm of history as her. In Jewish culture, those who die the night before Rosh Hashana or Yom Kippur are considered the righteous few who have nothing to repent. I truly believe this is true, and may her legacy live on forever ❤️

[–]IrritatedMangoFDS Newbie55 points56 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Honestly men like her husband were such a rarity too and you could really see how much she loved him when she spoke about him. Both HV people who deserve to rest in peace.

[–]bananachkaFDS Newbie45 points46 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Yes. May her memory be a blessing ♥️

[–][deleted] 16 points17 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I have all my respect and condolences to her and her family.

[–]thighsmatchFDS Newbie189 points190 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

This is tragic. Sisters in the US, particularly swing states: We must vote.

SCOTUS has so much power over women’s daily lives, from workplace discrimination to reproductive/BC access. If you aren’t registered do so immediately.

[–]Neko-RaiFDS Newbie61 points62 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

I think we should refer to the males who will try to destroy what RBG fought for as SCROTUS.

[–]HealingGumsMurphy01Throwaway Account2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I posted that thought somewhere here in FDS just a few days ago. Since there are scrotes on the Supreme Court, like Justice "I Like Beer" Kavanaugh, we should call it the SCROTUS.

[–]s_slayerFDS STRATEGY COACH224 points225 points  (4 children) | Copy Link

Brought me to tears. She hung on for so long. What a beautiful soul just wishing to change the world for the better.

I would also like to add that she said she married the only guy she dated who loved her for her brain. Married 56 years. HVM right there. Supported her through her life mission and remained loyal and loving. She said he had a great sense of humor while she had a sober one. Go for men with great senses of humor who respect intelligence in women.

That aside, she lived her life on her terms, she had the guts to persevere through all the sexism of her era to be able to change our country in so many positive ways. So much respect to this strong, classy lady.

[–]JesusisKingisLordFDS STRATEGY COACH60 points61 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

YES! Marty was a shining example of HVM.

[–]LieberAalFDS Apprentice46 points47 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

A friend of hers, who visited her today, is quoted in the Guardian saying "If she chould have held out any longer, she would have" ... makes me want to cry. Truly, what an icon.

[–]naga5497FDS Newbie48 points49 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

And she hung on in tremendous pain... for us. She did it for us.

[–]MulkvisteeFDS Apprentice294 points295 points  (28 children) | Copy Link

RIP Notorious RBG 😞 I'm equal parts sad for her family and all of us here in America losing an icon and terrified for the future.

Congress wouldn't confirm Garland at the end of Obama's term because they thought it would be "unfair to voters" to do so in the final year of his term. Somehow I doubt they'll have the same crisis of conscience on behalf of voters this time around. 🤬

[–]MissEuphorbiaFDS Newbie124 points125 points  (22 children) | Copy Link

Not to make it political, but McConnell has already stated he'd confirm a justice in an election year now that 45 is president.

[–]s_slayerFDS STRATEGY COACH76 points77 points  (6 children) | Copy Link

I believe they still fall short of confirming someone. Romney, two Republican women and I think one other have vowed not to vote for anyone and so I believe it won’t happen. Let’s hope anyway.

[–]thighsmatchFDS Newbie45 points46 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

They have until January to confirm someone. I’m betting they will name a woman nominee to give Collins and whatshername an out/as a way to pander.

[–]lilylilolyFDS Newbie10 points11 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

When push comes to shove, they always fall in line. They will absolutely vote to confirm, just like they did with kavanaugh.

[–]LieberAalFDS Apprentice25 points26 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Romney's spokesperson apparently just confirmed that he has made no such vow. I want to throw up honestly :/

[–]MulkvisteeFDS Apprentice19 points20 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Wonderful news! I'm cautiously optimistic it won't happen. I didn't realize how anxious I was until reading reports of this possibility had a physical lightening effect on it. Whoever was big mad enough to dv the hope Trump won't get to confirm a Supreme Court Justice gets my heartfelt thanks for the laugh. I mean, RBG just died but look at you passing out the karmic justice that matters. Truly not all heroes wear capes 😂👍

[–]GourmayFDS Newbie18 points19 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

The Romney thing is unconfirmed. We need Mark Kelly to be elected. I met him and Gabby and they’re amazing people.

[–]MulkvisteeFDS Apprentice64 points65 points  (13 children) | Copy Link

Yup I'm going through his greatest hypocrisy hits right now. Aaaand I'm looking at people Trump has mentioned as potential candidates. Currently on Tom Cotton, whose September 9th tweet of "It's time for Roe v Wade to go." confirms that terrified is the correct feeling.

I think it might be time for me to become sterilized, nothing is more terrifying than an unwanted pregnancy and no way to terminate it

[–]SearchLightsIncFDS Newbie15 points16 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

They wont let you sterilize yourself, im pretty sure they telly you to think of your boyfriend/partners feelings on it.

have y'all heard of a sex strike?

refuse sex to all men and watch how fast the law changes.

[–]NovemberinthechairFDS Apprentice39 points40 points  (7 children) | Copy Link

I wonder how bad this is going to get.

[–]MulkvisteeFDS Apprentice52 points53 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

Same. I'm torn between 'Handmaid's Tale' and the hope that this will make people scared and angry enough to vote. Then again, we all know how effective the popular vote is. The uncertainty of anything except things can always get worse is killing me right now.

[–]NovemberinthechairFDS Apprentice42 points43 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

Yes. Handmaid's Tale, Mad Max, Idiocracy...which one, I wonder? Actually, I think we're already at Idiocracy level.

[–]MulkvisteeFDS Apprentice24 points25 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

I hope we get to Mad Max level soon if we're stuck circling the drain on humanity. I'm feeling pretty stabby.

[–]Shrimpy_monstersFDS Newbie21 points22 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

[–]NovemberinthechairFDS Apprentice8 points9 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Cross your fingers. I've got a bad feeling about this.

[–]flicktasticFDS Newbie15 points16 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

The majority didn’t elect him the first time, and the majority won’t elect him this next time. Unfortunately by now a lot of us half expect him to steal the election again since we know he did it the first time but for some reason the Senate aborted the impeachment trial. I guess his followers only believe in one type of abortion in this country.

[–]AdawritesrulesFDS Disciple8 points9 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

It is no doubt that the rapist and chief will replace her with another rapist. At least HALF of those old white men are rapists. At least half, but probably more. Some scrote somewhere is chocking whilenyelling BUT NOT ALLLL

[–]CloacaDiddlerFDS Apprentice4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Ah fuck

[–]ooftaboofta3FDS Newbie2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

McConnell has already released a statement saying they will vote on it in this term. Regardless of election cycle.

[–]PR0N0IAFDS Newbie7 points8 points  (4 children) | Copy Link

Terrible precedent for them to set. However, it’s not 100% the same. There is a technicality there— Obama was a lame duck president, while Trump is up for re-election. I think it makes sense to start the proceedings for her replacement (research into their background, senate interviews, etc) & if Trump loses the election, the senate then tables his candidate. No way they’d get someone fully confirmed by Nov 4th anyways— that process takes months and the election is only a month and a half away. But if he does get re-elected, it makes no sense to force the Supreme Court to be down a justice for longer than needed. I strongly believe the senate should have confirmed (or at least voted on) Garland. If Trump loses and they try to push a candidate through afterwords (or before the election), then that is hypocritical in my opinion. Working on a finding a replacement during the election, not so much.

[–]MulkvisteeFDS Apprentice58 points59 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

Everything you wrote makes total sense in a civilized political world. Recent history makes me not trust that steps toward replacement will be measured and considerate, but I'd love to be pleasantly surprised.

[–]buttercupcake23FDS Newbie13 points14 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Exactly. Expecting Republicans to act in good faith had not worked out for the last 20 years. There is no point in taking the high road when you know the other guy is going to push you off a cliff the moment he can.

[–]MulkvisteeFDS Apprentice5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

That's the truth. At this point expecting any sort of decorum is dangerous self delusion.

[–]Wco39MJY3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Stop making excuses for NVM and their behaviour. It was wrong to not confirm Obama's nominee. They approved 6 judges in 30 hours this week. Their goal is to protect their white supremacist rapist in chief and their 1 percent robber baron friends. Please vote, protest and stand up for your rights. No one else is going to do it. There is nothing normal in the current administration they have completely sold out and will do anything to stay in power.

[–]TheStar_XVIIFDS Newbie77 points78 points  (12 children) | Copy Link

I am devastated. I want to be around other women and mourn so bad right now.

[–]Im_feminist_bite_meFDS Newbie39 points40 points  (9 children) | Copy Link

I'm in Australia and I'm crying, too. I'm so sorry for what has become of the U.S. (and sadly here, too) but eff me if this didn't get me right in the feels.

R.I.P. Roe v. Wade.

Vale RBG.

[–]TheStar_XVIIFDS Newbie76 points77 points  (8 children) | Copy Link

R.I.P. Roe v. Wade.

I decided I'm going to start a sex strike if Roe v. Wade gets overturned. No more sex with men. Isn't that the conservative talking point? "If you don't want to get pregnant, don't have sex"? Ok, fine. We won't. Maybe men will advocate for us more once it starts affecting their dicks.

[–]Im_feminist_bite_meFDS Newbie40 points41 points  (6 children) | Copy Link

Brilliant! I've often wondered why women don't do this worldwide (and/or a general strike) to break the patriarchy altogether. I understand this happened in India once and it made a huge difference. I reckon it'd take us about 24 hours to bring that shit down, imo. We have so few powers but this would really show who does the heavy lifting in our society. I'd be happy to lead the movement and pick a date. My only worry is the pikmeishas would undermine it.

[–]TheMissInformedFDS Newbie2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

I think it's a great idea, but my second thought is, how much would it increase the amount of rape? Men already do not respect our sexual boundaries. It's so scary to think about how grim our situation is as women. We can't let fear stop us from fighting, though.

[–]Im_feminist_bite_meFDS Newbie1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I see where you're coming from and I certainly do not in any way want to increase the levels of violent assault but I think it's going to happen anyway and, if we stay quiet, then we're letting them win. Mostly it's about control of women, from religion to authoritarianism/fascism, so if we're going to lose either way we may as well go down fighting.

[–]SpaceC4seFDS Newbie6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I'm so sorry for your loss, my American sisters 😭❤️ I have read quite a lot about her, and she was such a badass woman. I've been waiting for the right time to watch that movie about her (On the Basis of Sex) and I think I will watch it this weekend, in her honor.

Yeah, this is truly upsetting... And the timing 😭

[–]nr2596FDS Newbie11 points12 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

This is so very sad. RIP to a true inspiration. I have a feeling scary times are coming. We have to fight and make her proud!!

What an amazing lady. RIP.

She was such an inspiration for me and other men and women. Her strength and fortitude throughout her life are things I will aspire to even match the half of. Truly a huge loss.

This is so devastating.

One upside may be that a LOT more women - and some of the better men - might start to become far more discerning about who they sleep with now that Roe v Wade is up in the air.

Whether they realize it or not, there is likely to be heavy, potentially life-threatening consequences to unwanted pregnancies. This could easily have huge changes for dating/hookup culture.

While I definitely value how we as women are far more accepted for being sexual than we were decades ago, I still hope this horrible situation might have the upside of increasing our standards.

And for those who are able, please do everything you can to ensure all women have access to these basic healthcare needs.

Can't wait till next summer when we'll see the end of the ACA, abortion totally outlawed, and all environmental regulations completely scrapped. Wow, I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

I’m Australian and her death affected me in an unexpected way. May she Rest In Peace. She lived a very fulfilling life. Praying for my American sisters, please don’t let her legacy vanish. 💕💕💕

A Queen a Legend an Inspiration. Accomplished, strong, poised, and fair. She is everything anyone’s ever dreamed of being and she will forever be remembered.
