Supreme Court Justice to address gender bias March 13
Mar 11, 2006
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will speak at The University of Toledo Monday, March 13, at 2 p.m. in Doermann Theater.
The title of her speech is “Advocating the Elimination of Gender-Based Discrimination: The New Look at the Equality Principle Launched in the 1970s.” Ginsburg will describe cases in which she appeared as counsel and discuss her reflections on them.
Her visit is part of the College of Law Distinguished Lecture Series.
Ginsburg became an associate justice with the court in 1993, following a nomination by President Bill Clinton. She previously had served as a judge in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit and as the American Civil Liberties Union’s general counsel. She received her bachelor of laws degree from Columbia Law School, where she later served as professor.
For security reasons, federal marshals have asked that people attending the speech do not bring personal belongings into the theater.
