Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Champion Of Gender Equality, Dies At 87

posted on September 20, 2020

NPR’s Nina Totenberg reports that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on Friday at the age of 87 from cancer. Totenberg writes, “Architect of the legal fight for women’s rights in the 1970s, Ginsburg subsequently served 27 years on the nation’s highest court, becoming its most prominent member. Her death will inevitably set in motion what promises to be a nasty and tumultuous political battle over who will succeed her, and it thrusts the Supreme Court vacancy into the spotlight of the presidential campaign.”
