It was a sad day for the United States, especially for the women of the US, as Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg took her last breath on September 18, 2020. She died due to complications of pancreatic cancer. This icon of gender equality showed the US Supreme Court, the right perspective of women’s rights. She was the voice of millions of women and dedicated her entire career advocating gender equality before being appointed to the US Supreme Court. She was the second woman Chief Justice of the US. The court had appointed her in 1993 and she served the office until her death.
This is how some of the most famous people took to twitter to share their condolences.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was the kind of scholar and patriot you get excited about explaining to your kids. The kind of person who you say “who knows, one day you could be HER”. I hope you rest well, RBG, you must have been tired from changing the world.— Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) September 19, 2020

She carried us for so long. And she knew. She knew what was waiting, and she held on for us all, at the expense of time with her loved ones. We owe it to her that her fight not be in vain.— Ashlee Latimer (@ALNL) September 18, 2020
RIP Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. We’ll carry the torch now. We must.
