On Saturday morning, US Justice system was thrown into deep mourning with the report of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg‘s death at the age of 87.

The Gender equality champion and ‘titan of law’ died of complications from metastatic pancreas cancer at her home in Washington, DC, surrounded by her family, the court said in a statement on Friday evening.

Ginsburg served as the most senior member of the court’s liberal wing with a consistent progressive voting record on the most divisive social issues including: abortion rights, same-sex marriage, immigration and affirmative action.

The legal pioneer, who was affectionately referred to as “The Notorious R.B.G.,” was appointed to the court in 1993 by President Bill Clinton. She remained popular, especially among youth and was sought after for many speaking engagements across the country. She was also popular on social media for her famed exercise routine and her fiery dissents.

US media says she was one tough cookie, surviving five bouts of cancer–most recently in early 2020 when a biopsy revealed lesions on her liver. In a statement, she said that chemotherapy was yielding “positive results” and that she was able to maintain an active daily routine.

Immediately after the news broke, flags outside the White House and Supreme Court in the US capital were lowered to half-staff while hundreds of people also gathered outside the Supreme Court to mourn her passing.

Also tributes poured in from politicians, celebrities, athletes and many others, who hailed Ginsburg as a liberal icon who paved the way for women. See few of them below:
