Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the backbone and soul of the liberal wing of the Supreme Court and an iconic American figure has died.
According to report, Ruth died Friday from complications from cancer.
RBG was known for her fiery dissents and intense work ethic. Ruth didn’t miss a single day of work until this January, a striking fact considering she’s battled 3 kinds of cancer since being appointed to SCOTUS by President Clinton in 1993.
Ruth was the first female Jewish Justice, and the second of four women to ever sit on our nation’s highest court. She filled the seat vacated by retiring Justice Byron White.
A pop culture icon, RBG is the subject of the new biopic, “On The Basis of Sex,” which stars Felicity Jones as a young Ginsburg and Armie Hammer as her husband. Ruth has a cameo in the film.
Before she became the Notorious RBG … Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a high school twirler who also played for her school orchestra at James Madison HS in southeast Brooklyn, graduating in 1950.
