There's never been another like her. And when Ruth Bader Ginsburg died in September, the outpouring of support and loss of a national treasure, was palpable.
Like most women, I felt like I had lost a role model. A #shero. An absolutely fierce lioness who lived a life of courage. And I wanted to honor her by sharing how she lived a life of #thinkingcourageously.
So I called in members of my squad ( and beloved Inkhorn Book Club), Dr. Nichola Gutgold and Jessica Armstrong. The authors of the children's book, "Growing Up Supremely".
In their book, the authors share the inspiring, and hardworking lives of the four women justices— Sandra Day O’Connor, Elena Kagan, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, & Sonia Sotomayor.
As we do each week, we look at the role of success, pivots and courage. And how these three words weaved into the life of #RBG.
Nikki and Jessica share some of their favorite stories about the Justice. We talk about work/life balance, marriage, motherhood, unusual friendships, kindness and values.
It's an up-close and personal look into a woman who made us all think differently.
Jessica Armstrong serves as the Associate General Counsel at St. Luke's Health Network. Dr. Nichola Gutgold is a Professor of Communications at Penn State University-Lehigh Valley Campus.
