On Women’s Day: Santiago Center Celebrates RBG’s Life and Legacy
March 11, 2019
In the context of the International Women’s Day, the Santiago Center, in association with the Chilean Bar Association, exhibited the acclaimed Documentary RBG, directed by Columbia University's Betsy West and Julie Cohen, followed by a panel discussion featuring Verónica Undurraga, professor of Constitutional Law at Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez (Columbia LLM '95), and Pablo Ruiz Tagle, Dean of Universidad de Chile's School of Law (Yale JSD '95). The discussion was chaired by Magdalena Engel, Communications Manager at Carey (Columbia MIA '05).
This film covers the exceptional life and career of US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. Both Undurraga and Ruiz-Tagle praised RBG’s trajectory and legacy and, picking-up the US experience, discussed the current challenges that Chile faces in terms of gender equality.
