This month, many staff have decorated their doors with images and information about women who have influenced American history, from relatively unknown figures such as Pauli Murray (lawyer, activist, and LGBTQ advocate) to legends such as Ruth Bader Ginsberg (whose successful argument before the Supreme Court in favor of the Equal Protection Clause being extended to women was influenced by Murray's writings).
