Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Ruth Bader Ginsburg /ˈbdər/ (born Joan Ruth Bader; March 15, 1933) is an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. Ginsburg was appointed by President Bill Clinton and took the oath of office on August 10, 1993. She is the second female justice (after Sandra Day O'Connor) to be confirmed to the court, and one of four female justices to be confirmed (with Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, who are still serving). Following O'Connor's retirement, and prior to Sotomayor joining the court, Ginsburg was the only female justice on the Supreme Court. During that time, Ginsburg became more forceful with her dissents, which were noted by legal observers and in popular culture. She is generally viewed as belonging to the liberal wing of the court. Ginsburg has authored notable majority opinions, including United States v. Virginia, Olmstead v. L.C., and Friends of the Earth Inc. v. Laidlaw Environmental Services, Inc.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

I was honored to hear Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg speak at my school just minutes ago and the first thing I thought of after her speech was Sussle! I wanted to share with you all something very profound she said during her interview. She said "As long as one lives, one can learn." Just think about that for a moment. I think what the second female justice in the history of the Supreme Court said, so appropriately applies to what we are doing here on Sussle. We are continually sharing our knowledge and learning from others while we live our lives. Next time you see this picture or her in person, think of what she said and how it is so intertwined with Sussle!

What is Sussle?

Sussle is the first, open visual encyclopedia. Anyone can use it.

What's a visual encylopedia?

It has beautiful images and viral videos that are way more fun than reading all the text in traditional encyclopedias.

5 reasons you should add your own images and videos:

  1. If you found Sussle interesting, then give back by adding something interesting for others.
  2. Help others learn in a fun way.
