“United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has left a lasting impact in our nation. Historically, she will be remembered as a powerhouse who used her wealth of judicial knowledge and legal skills to better women and gender equality. Her strong independence, thanks to her mother’s influence, and often being one of the few women in different moments of her life obviously shaped her early legal profession, academia work and her 27 years on the U.S. Supreme Court, says Olivia Garcia, a BC History Faculty and WHAM Committee Member. “I hope to see our community come together to give tribute to RBG and her steadfast personal commitment to making this country a better, more equal place for everyone.”

Women's History and More (WHAM) at Bakersfield College organizes an array of programs that are open and free to the public. The Bakersfield College campus remains closed to the general public and is only offering essential courses with strict protocols and guidelines.
