Supreme Court Justice Bader Ginsburg remembered for fighting for gender equity


Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the second woman to serve as a justice and a powerhouse for gender equity, died Friday. The Supreme Court announced her death, saying the cause was complications from metastatic cancer of the pancreas, according to NPR. Here is a compilation of stories honoring her and some of her most memorable quotes.

“When I’m sometimes asked ‘When will there be enough (women on the Supreme Court)?’ and my answer is: ‘When there are nine.’ People are shocked. But there’d been nine men, and nobody’s ever raised a question about that.”

“My mother told me to be a lady. And for her, that meant be your own person, be independent.”

“When a thoughtless or unkind word is spoken, best tune out. Reacting in anger or annoyance will not advance one’s ability to persuade.”

“Women will have achieved true equality when men share with them the responsibility of bringing up the next generation.”
