IP Osgoode is saddened by the loss of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg of the United States Supreme Court. Justice Ginsburg was a true champion for gender equality and justice and her courage, strength and perseverance were an inspiration to many.
David Post, Adjunct Scholar at the Cato Institute, in his tribute notes “[h]er legacy is prodigious. She transformed American law through her work on equal rights for all, and, especially in her later years, she served as an inspirational symbol for millions of people—especially, though hardly exclusively, for millions of young girls who drew strength from her work and from her life.”
Justice Ginsburg’s passing is an immense loss to not only the legal community but society writ large, in the US and afar.
