Ruth Bader Ginsburg quote

 Serene Jones, President of Union Theological Seminary, tells this story about Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Christian Century, October 21) and her answer to the question of her role models as a young Jewish girl growing up in Brooklyn.
"One was real, one was made up, and one was biblical.  Amelia Earhart. A Hero.  Nancy Drew - she didn't wait for boys to solve problems, she just did it herself.  And Deborah, the judge from the Hebrew Bible. I didn't know what judges did, but I wanted to be like her."
