Warren Statement on the Passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Washington, DC - United States Senator Elizabeth Warren said the following on the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: 

Elizabeth Warren @SenWarren Ruthie was my friend and I will miss her terribly. The t-shirts simply labeled "RBG" made her notorious. But it was her wit, her tenaciousness, and her skill as a jurist that made her an icon.

Elizabeth Warren @SenWarren As a young mom heading off to Rutgers law school, I saw so few examples of female lawyers or law professors. But Ruthie blazed the trail. I'm forever grateful for her example - to me, and to millions of young women who saw her as a role model.

Elizabeth Warren @SenWarren Later, Ruthie's groundbreaking work as a legal advocate for women led to a distinguished career as a federal judge and a Supreme Court Justice. Her lifelong dedication to fighting for justice for everyone, and her love for our nation, will be sorely missed.

Elizabeth Warren @SenWarren With voting already under way for the 2020 elections, Ruthie's "most fervent wish" was for her replacement not to be named "until a new president is installed." We must honor her wish.
