The world mourned the loss of pioneering feminist, outstanding legal scholar and historic Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Friday night.
The Brooklyn-born Justice — only the second woman appointed to the bench — died Friday due to complications of metastatic pancreas cancer, the Supreme Court announced.
“Our nation has lost a jurist of historic stature,” Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., said of Ginsburg. “We at the Supreme Court have lost a cherished colleague.”
Ginsburg was praised from the left as a firebrand who developed a cult following over her 25 years on the bench.
“Justice Ginsburg paved the way for so many women, including me. There will never be another like her. Thank you RBG,” Hillary Clinton posted to Twitter.
Though Americans from both sides of the political spectrum honored her for breaking through glass ceilings as she rose in power.
“Rest in peace Ruth Bader Ginsburg – a true legend, an iconoclast, a glass ceiling breaker, and a feminist icon,” wrote Meghan McCain. “She changed the world in so many incredible ways. Prayers, love and strength to her family during this dark time. I hope you have fun with Antonin Scalia in heaven…”
Minnesota Senator and one-time 2020 presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar added Ginsburg was “an icon. A hero. A woman way ahead of her time.”
Even some of her fiercest opponents paid their respects.
“Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a credit to the Court,” former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani posted on Twitter. “I disagreed with many of her decisions but they were all well reasoned and well argued. She was a close friend of her ideological opposite, Justice Scalia. They both loved opera, law and the U.S.A. May She Rest In Peace”
