#SOL20: Notorious RBG

Since Friday’s news, my reading and writing has been fueled by emotions: shock, rage, doubt, rants, and so much more . . .

So with zero idea of what to post for today’s slice, I sought inspiration in other slices and found that nugget in Reflections of the Teche. (Source: Margaret Simon’s post here)

Ruth Bader Ginsberg

the second woman

on the Supreme Court

a pioneering advocate for women’s rights

a cultural icon

… her image tattooed on arms; daughter dressed in R.B.G. costumes for Halloween; and “You Can’t Spell Truth Without Ruth”on bumper stickers and T-shirts.

“A model of female influence,


dignity and


as the embodiment of hope

for an empowered future.”

How will you honor the “Notorious RBG”?


Thank you, Two Writing Teachers, for this weekly forum. Check out the writers and readers here.

  2. Yes, RBG has been a force for us all to learn from indeed. Thank you for your words of encouragement and hope. it is lacking now a days!

  3. A wonderful tribute to a powerful woman. Thanks for your words.

  4. Thanks for the shout out. Like the death of John Lewis, I feel we are losing icons, people we could trust to do good for the sake of goodness. What is happening to these values?

  5. A wonderful tribute, Fran. Such a loss. Thank you for sharing.

  6. Oh, I love that quote – “You can’t spell the truth without Ruth.” Thank you for this! Such a tremendous loss.
