Kathleen Peratis Reflects on Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Gender Equality Advocate

Kathleen Peratis Reflects on Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Gender Equality Advocate

The entire Outten & Golden family was saddened to hear about the death of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but no one more than our partner Kathleen Peratis, a close friend of Justice Ginsburg.

Kathleen served as the director of the ACLU Women’s Rights Project from 1975 to 1979, during which she fought alongside Ginsburg on the gender discrimination cases the ACLU took to the Court. Of the six appeals Ginsburg argued before “the brethren,” she won five.

10 Years After Dodd-Frank, Here’s What We Know

In 2010, Congress responded to years of turmoil in the financial services industry by enacting the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank). This landmark legislation was intended to protect consumers, regulate and police Wall Street, restore economic stability, end “too-big-to-fail” institutions, and prevent another financial crisis.

July 2020 marked the tenth anniversary of Dodd-Frank. Despite several attempts to undercut the law over the past decade, its protections have benefitted countless U.S. consumers, investors, taxpayers, and whistleblowers. Even now, Dodd-Frank has helped the nation avoid an economic collapse in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
