In a recent article in Managing IP, co-chair and partner of the Intellectual Property practice, Karen Artz Ash, reflects on Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s, legacy following her recent passing, and the progress of gender equality within the legal profession.
Karen specifically praised Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s ability to manage her career and raise a family.
“I’ve raised two, now grown, daughters while never missing a beat in my work life and my home life. Having her as an incredible example of managing all of those things has been a tremendous support,” Karen said.
Karen spent time with Ruth Bader Ginsburg during her work with the Civil Appeals Management Program, in which Ruth Bader Ginsburg joined a group of justices to speak with those who were mediators and volunteers for the court.
Karen explained how Ruth Bader Ginsburg made an effort to talk, in particular, to the women mediators and volunteers about how women need to make more of an effort to be better, smarter and more capable to receive the same recognition as men.
The article in Managing IP describes all the ways in which Ruth Bader Ginsburg inspired and influenced women in intellectual property law, as she fought for gender and other forms of equality throughout her lifetime.
