All Souls Unitarian Church is pleased to sponsor In Her Honor, a series of events celebrating the late Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her outstanding contributions to women’s rights. The monthly presentations by notable women, from our community and beyond, celebrate and inform us of the progress women have made towards equality, equity, and justice. The series is on Zoom every month through November 2021 and free to all.
On April 13 at 7 pm Boston Avenue Law attorney, Kirsten Bernhardt, will explain the little-known Supreme Court case out of Stillwater, Oklahoma that laid the foundation for increasing women’s rights in 1976 while Justice Ginsburg was working for the ACLU. In Craig vs. Boren the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Craig and overturned an Oklahoma law restricting the sale of beer. See more about the event, In Her Honor: Sex Appeal on Facebook.
On April 15 at 7:30 pm, In Her Honor partners with Magic City Books to present former Tulsa Mayor Kathy Taylor interviewing Amanda Tyler regarding the book she co-authored with Justice Ginsburg, “Justice, Justice, Thou Shalt Pursue: A Life’s Work Fighting for a More Perfect Union. See more about the event, RBG & Me: Celebrating the Life & Legacy of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Join us for this exciting series of women speakers! In Her Honor is co-sponsored by our small group, Women of All Souls which meets 1st, 3rd, and 4th Tuesdays of the month on zoom. All who identify as women are welcome.
