In Memoriam: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
SEPTEMBER 19, 2020
Because of her impact on American society, Ruth Bader Ginsburg (sometimes affectionately referred to RBG) became a cultural icon. She joins a handful of towering government figures who are instantly recognizable only by their initials — like TR, FDR, and JFK. Born in Brooklyn, New York, during the Great Depression, Ruth Bader never attained great physical stature; however, her stature in the field of law was to be unequaled.
