Her former law clerks lined the steps of the Supreme Court as the casket of Ruth Bader Ginsburg was brought to the court where she will lie in repose (video above). Ginsburg was eulogized as a “path-marking role model for women and girls of all ages, who now know that no office is out of reach for their dreams.”
“It has been said that Ruth wanted to be an opera virtuoso but became a rock star instead. But she chose the law,” Chief Justice John Roberts said in his remembrance of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. https://t.co/ZsIxmR89Ja pic.twitter.com/Had6mGHUYm

“Ruth used to ask: What is the difference between a bookkeeper in Brooklyn and a Supreme Court justice?” “Her answer: one generation.” — Chief Justice John Roberts on Ruth Bader Ginsburg
For the mortgage I got without a man
For the right to demand equal pay to any male colleague
For the right to be pregnant and employed at the same time
Thank you, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and the women who fought alongside her
