The Life and Legacy of Ruth Bader Ginsburg - Episode 9.5!

Lauren and Tara interrupt the Legally Feminist scheduling with a special episode celebrating the life and legacy of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. This episode looks back on RBG's remarkable life and some of her most famous cases, but also looks forward to what her vacancy could mean for the future of the United States Supreme Court and the country as a whole. 

* A correction on this episode*

If Amy Coney Barrett does take up a seat on the US Supreme Court, it'll be a 6-3 conservative/republican majority. Should Trump win a second term and Stephen Breyer's seat becomes available, that would make it 7-2.
