Hillary Clinton acknowledged that she was a US-led trailblazer for women, saying, “Judge Ruth Ginsburg has paved the way for many women, including myself.”
The nation continues to mourn the loss of Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died Friday, two months after her pancreatic cancer reappeared. She was 87 years old.
Born to working-class Jewish immigrants in Brooklyn, Ginsburg would break every imaginable boundary, first as one of eight female law students at Harvard Law and later as a prolific lawyer who argued issues related to gender equality before the United States Supreme Court.
In 1993, President Bill Clinton appointed Ginsburg to that court, the second woman in history to serve on the nation’s highest legal tribunal.
During her 27 years as a Supreme Court judge, Ginsburg shaped history as a compassionate and liberal champion, eventually becoming the dean of the court’s liberal camp.

In 2018, actress Felicity Jones received critical acclaim for her portrayal of a young Ginsburg in the film On the Basis of Sex, which explored the challenges of Ginsburg’s early life as a working mother and an outstanding lawyer.
Ginsburg’s passing expressed sadness and kind words from across the political spectrum. Chief Justice of the Supreme Court John Roberts wrote, “Our country has lost its historic status. At the Supreme Court we lost a beloved colleague. Today we mourn, but hope that future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we know her – a tireless and determined champion of justice. ”
Former President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura Bush, shared similar sentiments: “she has dedicated many of her 87 significant years to the cause of justice and equality, and he has encouraged more than a generation of women and girls. Judge Ruth Ginsburg loved our country and the law. Laura and I were lucky to know this brilliant and humorous Trailblazer. ”
