Ruth Bader Ginsburg: Remembering the life of the U.S. Supreme Court Justice

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a stalwart liberal on the U.S. Supreme Court since 1993, died on Friday at age of 87.

Ginsburg, a champion of women’s rights who became an icon for American liberals, died at her home in Washington of complications from metastatic pancreatic cancer, the court said in a statement. She was surrounded by her family.

Her departure could dramatically alter the ideological balance of the United States Supreme court, which currently has a 5-4 conservative majority, by moving it further to the right.

“Our nation has lost a jurist of historic stature,” Chief Justice John Roberts said in a statement. “We at the Supreme Court have lost a cherished colleague. Today we mourn, but with confidence that future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we knew her – a tireless and resolute champion of justice.”

Global’s Robin Gill looks back at her remarkable life.

    It's insane to think you could hold a position of such importance until you literally die of old age.

    She will be quickly replaced quickly with an actual justice who follows the constitution. Weird eh, someone who is not biased and adheres to the constitution.

    One less corrupt politician in this world. lol if you all think this lady was a feminist icon your sorely mistaken there is a hell of a lot they aren't talking about. For example when Dick Chaney basically assumed control of the white house and caused all of America into an unwanted war… Who do you think facilitated that at the judicial level allowing him such free reign so he could act out his plans. this women was one of hundreds set in the supreme court to literally make sure the Afghanistan war happened

    We have lost a Supreme Court Justice who was genuinely committed to gender justice, and not just female supremacy. It's a rare Judge who has her unwavering commitment to Justice, without regard to politics, or gender bias.
