The untimely death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg sent shockwaves through the nation. According to the U.S. Supreme Court, Ginsburg died Friday of metastatic pancreatic cancer at age 87.
Appointed to the nation’s highest court in 1993 by former President Bill Clinton, Ginsburg was the oldest sitting member on the court. Despite a lengthy career on the court, she had never missed arguments until January 2019.
During her time as a justice and throughout her long law career, Ginsburg overcame adversity because of her gender, fought for women’s rights and eventually became the leader of the Supreme Court’s liberal wing.
