We celebrate Ruth Bader Ginsburg because she “knocked on closed doors, opened them, and held them open for others.” Dean of Harvard’s Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study Lizabeth Cohen used this phrase to introduce Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg at a luncheon on May 29.

“I just do the good job I have to the best of my ability and I don’t really worry about whether or not I’m inspirational,” she said. For my part, I try to do as well as I can. Recent years have seen an increase in the phrase “This is the way I am.”
