Not to get into politics - but RBG has some amazing accomplishments during her life.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg one of only four females Supreme Court Justices in history.
A couple of her many accomplishments while in office.
-Women have the right to financial independence and equal benefits.
Ginsburg’s work paved the way for the Equal
Credit Opportunity Act, which passed
and allowed women to apply for bank accounts, credit cards, and mortgages
without a male co-signer. She also helped ensure that women could receive the same
allowances as men, and women are no longer required to pay more
plans than men to receive the same benefits, according to the ACLU.
-Men are entitled to the same caregiving and Social Security rights
Throughout her career, Ginsburg stressed
how gender equality benefits both men and women.
In 1968, Ginsburg represented Charles
Moritz, a man who had never been married and claimed a tax deduction for caring
for his mother, according to
Smithsonian Magazine. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) denied his deduction
because he was a man and unmarried. The US Court of Appeals for the Tenth
Circuit ruled that the IRS had violated the Equal Protection Clause of the US
Constitution and in 1971 Section 214 of the IRS Code was amended to allow
individuals to claim caregiving deductions, regardless of sex.
-Juries must include women.
Today Zoom class, 7/24/21, we thank her for all her efforts for the people. I was suggested to design a class of a famous person. Jeanette, a student, suggested Ruth Bader Ginsburg. This class is the design I came up with.
