The Skinny: I was going to say something about Star Wars, but after the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg this weekend I changed my mind. FiA is a group created for women. We encourage each other and empower women to become who we were meant to be. This weekend the nation lost a giant champion for women. Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, fought for gender equality her entire adult life. As a lawyer in the 70s she argued 6 cases in front of the Supreme Court for women’s rights including equal pay and equal benefits. As a Supreme Court justice she continued her fight for the underdog. She was also a fitness fanatic and I think she would have loved FiA. I ended with a quote of hers, “Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.” – RBG
