The nation remains in grieving following the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
On Friday, Sept. 18, the 87-year-old passed away following problems from cancer. The Supreme Court stated in a declaration that she was surrounded by her enjoyed ones at the time of her death.
Flags are flying at half-staff in the nation’s capitol in honor of the justice, who served on the court for almost 30 years.
Her contributions to this nation started when she and hubby Martin Ginsburg pursued law degrees at Harvard Law School, and later on Columbia Law. At the time, she was among the couple of ladies to pursue a profession in the male-dominated field, which sustained her desire to eliminate for gender equality.
It was this commitment to the improvement of society that encouraged Ginsburg to remain on the court till her death, even as her cancer returned in July 2020. At the time, she discussed in a declaration, “I have often said I would remain a member of the court as long as I can do the job full steam. I remain fully able to do that.”
