She Stands Tall®

Don’t mistake politeness for lack of strength.

– U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonya Sotomayor

As a woman-owned law firm, we created a community to support women business owners and encourage their personal growth and development. In this monthly speaker series, we share stories, advice, and resources to help women both in and out of the workplace.

Women’s work-related struggles are different, but common threads exist including lower pay (a woman earns only 79% of what a man earns) and slower promotion rates. In 2018, 40% of U.S. businesses were owned by women – bringing in $1.8 trillion in revenue and employing 9.2 million people.

She Stands Tall® has connected me with a wide variety of women entrepreneurs, giving me an incredible opportunity to learn more about the creative pursuits of other women and strengthen my connection to our growing community.

– Sarah Nelson, Owner of The Ruby Tap

She Stands Tall

It's Stephanie Melnick, writing for She Stands Tall today. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on Friday. Justice Ginsburg was a brilliant legal scholar, a feminist trailblazer, and all-around bad ass. The Notorious RBG was a pop culture icon, her image, famous dissent collar, and quotes are on t-shirts, mugs, and now masks. She was a role model for many women. For me personally, she paved the way. She was and I am a Jewish, female lawyer, on either side of 5 feet tall. In 2015, the American Jewish World Service asked Justice Ginsburg to comment on Passover. True to herself, Justice Ginsburg focused on the brave women often sidelined in the story. "Retelling the heroic stories of Yocheved, Shifra, Puah, Miriam and Batya reminds our daughters that with vision and the courage to act, they can carry forward the tradition those intrepid women launched." Justice Ginsburg's vision and courage are legendary and for that, for her relentless commitment to gender equality, and for leading the way, I am grateful. We will continue to honor Justice Ginsburg this week by looking at how different women remember her, not so much the Notorious RBG, but how they remember their friend and grandmother. May her memory be for a blessing. ...
