Nina Totenberg

Who inspires the women who inspire us?

A journalism legend who covered the Pentagon Papers, infuriated J. Edgar Hoover and broke the story of Anita Hill’s allegations against Clarence Thomas, Nina Totenberg was twice named one of Esquire magazine’s “Women We Love.” The Supreme Court and Legal Affairs correspondent for NPR, she has received two dozen honorary degrees, loves mindless TV and was close friends with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. That’s inspiration!

Women Inspiring Women:
The Series

Who inspires the women who inspire us?

When you’re afraid you’re not brave enough to take that risky step, whose image do you conjure up to give you courage?

Who do you turn to — literally or figuratively — when you need the strength to say yes, or no, to a challenge, an opportunity or a proposal?

Whose story galvanizes you to be your best self?

We all have our role models, heroines and influencers who help us keep setting our bars higher and higher, who inspire us to take risks, who serve as our bulwarks against social pressure. But who plays that role in the lives of some of America’s most successful women?

The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center has invited a series of intriguing and multifaceted women from dramatically different backgrounds to answer that question, to explore the role of “heroines” in their lives and to talk about how they’ve helped them become the women they are.
