U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died last Friday at her home in Washington at age 87. Ginsburg served on the Court for 27 years after being nominated by President Bill Clinton in 1993. She previously held a seat on the D.C. Circuit. Ginsburg spent much of her career litigating gender equality cases, cofounding the Women’s Rights Project at the ACLU in the early 1970s. More recently she had become a cultural icon, widely known for her strenuous workouts and “Notorious R.B.G.” nickname. Ginsburg famously was close friends with the late Justice Antonin Scalia. At a ceremony this week, Chief Justice John Roberts described her as “tough, brave, a fighter, a winner” and added that she was “thoughtful, careful, compassionate, and honest.” Ginsburg will lie in state in the United States Capitol today, the first woman to receive that honor.
