Not only America, but the whole world, mourns the loss of a great woman, a source of inspiration for millions of young women around the world from the 40s to today .. and beyond.. The second woman to be appointed judge of the US Supreme Court. Born in Brooklyn, has always been a warrior of civil rights for women and the weakest.. A woman who challenged every man who told her that this was not her place .. Ruth made her place in a world where women were not accepted at the time.. she studied at one of the most prestigious universities in the country, where women were 10% of male students at Harvard law school, and then after moving to New York at Columbia University, graduated in 1959 had a lot of difficulty in finding work as a lawyer, women were not frowned upon, for a profession where it was said to have to be soulless, so she started working as a teacher at Columbia, but it was not what she wanted, one thing that characterized her was determination , and this is not only read in books, but you also notice it in the various interviews ..She had studied to be a lawyer, she helped her husband in this and yet… no office wanted her, women in lawyers’ offices at the time were bound to do secretarial work and… coffee!All this gave as a push, to want more first as a woman .. the role of women in America had to be reviewed, she had known that in Sweden the percentage of female students was 25% compared to males .. in practice almost triple the amount to America .. I think it was in that moment that she realized what his purpose in life was. She volunteered for the American civil liberties union for which she was a lawyer, and co-authored a law book on sexist discrimination at work. she has been the advocate of many battles against gender discrimination in the workplace, she has been close to women and she fought for them … for equality … she has shown the whole world that a woman can be anything she wants … first a court of appeals judge and then supreme court judge .. but together also a mother and a wife .. I had the honor of being able to visit the museum in Philadelphia in her honor in 2019 .. an extraordinary exhibition, where I was able to learn more about the life of a woman, a source of immense inspiration ..and I seriously think that yesterday America lost the last symbol for the fight against equality and equal rights .. Bye Ruth rest in peace, thanks for all the pearls of wisdom that we will pass down from generation to generation, thanks for all the struggles for women to have equality in the workplace. Thanks for teaching us that we can be whatever we always want ..

Real change, enduring change, happens one step at a time.”
