“Feminism holds the most hope for the world” 

EUI journalist Olivia Arigho-Stiles speaks to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court and the second woman to ever be appointed to the position.

They discuss the efforts made by feminists to break down barriers against women as well as continued challenges to women’s rights in Europe and the US.

Justice Bader Ginsburg visited the EUI to deliver the Ursula Hirschmann lecture as a conversation with Professor Ruth Rubio Marín from the EUI Law Department.

Throughout her career, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been a tireless advocate for  equal rights for women as a constitutional principle. In recent years, a movement led by fans has succeeded in creating the popular character of “Notorious RBG” (a riff on the name of Brooklyn gangsta rapper Notorious B.I.G.).
