General diary entries

RIP RBG

Before I do anything else today, I had to write a quick blog about the news I have woken up to.

Ruth Bader Ginsberg, a US Supreme Court Judge died peacefully in her sleep, surrounded by her family, after another battle with cancer.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, feminist pioneer and progressive icon, dies at  87 - SCOTUSblog

The world has lost an incredible woman.
She fought tirelessly for the rights of women and ultimately for all people.
She never gave up!

If you want to watch a good film today and find out how this incredible woman started her amazing career, then watch ‘On the Basis of Sex’

It’s a sad day for equality laws.
Supreme Court Justices are appointed by the President.
The worry now is that Trump will replace Ruth with a Conservative-leaning Justice which will cement the Court’s tilt to the right!!
This could have a disastrous effect on equality laws for years to come!
Some laws could even be back tracked.

As if America didn’t have enough to worry about right now!!
