On Sept. 18, 2020 Ruth Bader Ginsburg died at the age of 87. The Supreme Court reported she died from complications from metastatic cancer of the pancreas. Ginsburg was  a feminist icon in the 1970s and remains a popular culture and feminist icon. She was an architect of the legal fight for women’s rights, as well as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. Ginsburg was the second woman on the Supreme Court (following Sandra Day O’Connor) and served 27 years on the nation’s highest court becoming its most prominent member. Her service to this country is truly apprenticed by many as seen by the large crowds and memorials in Washington, D.C. following Ginsburg’s death. On Saturday, Sept. 26, President Trump nominated Amy Coney Barrett to fill the vacant spot on the Supreme Court left by Ginsburg. Confirmation hearings have not been scheduled.
