“Today is a celebration of HERstoric proportions because we are memorializing a Brooklyn-born champion for gender equality, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. From Harvard Law School to the Supreme Court, she transformed the barriers that she encountered into opportunities to end gender-based discrimination. It is truly fitting that on her birthday and during Women’s HERstory Month, we are renaming the Brooklyn Municipal Building to commemorate her legacy after decades of public service. May her courage, strength, perseverance, and illustrious career continue to inspire future generations,” said Council Member Farah N. Louis, Co-Chair of the Women’s Caucus.
