Ginsburg Named One of Glamour Magazine's 'Women of the Year 2012'

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has achieved a new honor: She is one of Glamour Magazine’s “Women of the Year 2012.”

The magazine noted Ginsburg’s groundbreaking work on behalf of women’s rights. Its write-up begins this way:

“You could call it a bit of a rocky start: After being one of just nine women in her freshman class of hundreds at Harvard Law (and then graduating from Columbia Law), Ruth Bader Ginsburg was refused a job with a prominent male judge just because she was female; then, as a law professor, she had to hide her second pregnancy in order to avoid workplace discrimination—and fight to get paid as much as a man. Lucky for us, our world looks nothing like that anymore, and that, in fact, is thanks largely to Ginsburg.”
