I blinked and, without much fanfare, the first month of 2019 was over. At the blurring rate I’ve been going, time spins forward without necessarily much to show for it. The exception of course was the two characteristically outstanding WLALA programs I attended in January. Those were very memorable!
The first was a joint movie night organized by WLALA and the National Association of Women Judges (NAWJ). We filled a movie theater with attendees from both organizations for a showing of “On the Basis of Sex.” This biopic of the early career of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, long before her appointment to the bench, covers much of the same material as the documentary “RBG” but through actors as opposing to through interviews and other historical material. Whether through actors or interviews, the life of Justice Ginsburg offers a tremendous amount of inspiration, and knowing I was surrounded by a cadre of women lawyers and judges in the same theater too, made the night even more special. Bravo!
