In Memoriam: Ruth Bader Ginsburg

A Statement from the Center for Civic Education President Christopher R. Riano

It is with great sadness that the Center recognRuth Bader Ginsburg Quoteizes the loss of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and reflects on her extraordinary legacy as a pioneer for equality and as a devoted advocate for equal justice under law. Just yesterday, Justice Neil Gorsuch celebrated Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg for her incredible service on the Supreme Court, telling students across America to “think about the sacrifices she’s made on our behalf. We owe her a very great deal.”

Joan Ruth Bader was born on March 15, 1933, into a world where women were expected to marry, bear and raise children, cook, and keep house for their husbands. She and thousands of other female icons remade that world into one where women become professors, athletes, mechanics, and “notorious” justices.

Today, we at the Center for Civic Education celebrate the legacy of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as Chief Justice Roberts did tonight. “Our Nation has lost a jurist of historic stature. We at the Supreme Court have lost a cherished colleague. Today we mourn, but with confidence that future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we knew her—a tireless and resolute champion of justice.”
