This Women's History Month, we honor legendary legal visionary Ruth Bader Ginsburg (LAW'59, HON'94), who would have turned 91 today. Ginsburg was the first woman tenured professor at Columbia Law School and the second woman to serve as a justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. Let's celebrate the generations of women (students, alumnae, professors, and staff) who have made Columbia great.
