I don’t need to wait until next Christmas to be reminded of what RBG has done. Her spirit is with me always. I feel blessed to be working with Teneral Cellars to promote its RBG collection of wine and to have the opportunity to raise a glass to an incredible woman.
As a woman in a historically all-male field – agriculture, I was always looking for female role models, from any field or industry. Ruth Bader Ginsburg (RBG) is a role model and hero of mine and was so even before she became a Supreme Court Justice for her work on gender equity at the ACLU.
A gender line ... helps to keep women not on a pedestal, but in a cage.
Ruth Bader Ginsberg stands as a shinning beacon of women that have risen to become trusted leaders. A trusted leader is someone that stands in the dark and shines a light so everyone can now see. For those of us who lead a business, there is much to be learned from her approach.
March is Women’s History Month, and we are all about celebrating and elevating all womxn! With the new SWARM RBG Collection wines we released last week, we will be celebrating all things RBG, with a focus on “Justice” this month, with a series of roundtable discussions, blogs, wine tasting, coloring and crafts, and cooking classes that honor her legacy and feature discussions on what RBG meant to so many, and the influence she has had on womxn in wine and around this country.
When I look back at many of the strong women who have inspired me both personally and professionally, I think Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is among the most influential. In a world where womxn were expected to comply, she famously said “I dissent.”
