Issues arise nearly even day that highlight not just the unity of need and ambition among the whole disability community, but the many differences among people with disabilities individually.
The end of the era of Ruth Bader Ginsburg has meaning for many. Trailblazer, fierce advocate for equal rights for women, and icon of dignified feminism, RBG will be deeply missed. Her personal life was an example of a marriage on equal footing for both partners. Her husband Marty did many of the tasks people in that day considered “women’s work”. Likewise, she was doing what many still considered “men’s work”, being a litigator, arguing cases in court. Her history-making work was going on as I was in law school, creating somewhat of a revolution in thinking as women’s rights became the law. It began to change the way people perceived women in all aspects of life and particularly in the workplace. All these decades have passed with laws changing, yet the persistent cultural perception of caregiving for aging loved ones still most often casts women in the role of caregiver.
