Hollywood eert overleden Amerikaanse rechter Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Ruth Bader Ginsburg, de tweede vrouwelijke rechter van het Amerikaanse hooggerechtshof, is op zevenentachtigjarige leeftijd overleden. Ze nam het tijdens haar carrière op voor vrouwenrechten, kansarme gezinnen en de lgbtq-gemeenschap.
Ginsburg was het onderwerp van Betsy Wests en Julie Cohens Oscargenomineerde documentaire RBG uit 2018 en werd in datzelfde jaar vertolkt door Felicity Jones in Mimi Leders On the Basis of Sex.
“Toen we Ruth Bader Ginsburg enkele jaren terug vroegen hoe ze wilde herinnerd worden, zei ze heel bescheiden: ‘Als iemand die deed wat ze kon, met het beperkte talent dat ze had om de maatschappij te bevorderen voor mijn kinderen en kleinkinderen.’,” reageren West en Cohen.

Rest In Peace And Power Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the demure firebrand who in her 80s became a legal, cultural, and feminist icon has died from complications from cancer. Just days before her death, as her strength waned, Ginsburg dictated this statement to her granddaughter Clara Spera: "My most fervent wish is that i I will not be replaced until a new president is installed." Architect of the legal fight for women's rights in the 1970s, Ginsburg subsequently served 27 years on the nation's highest court, becoming its most prominent member. Her death will inevitably set in motion what promises to be a nasty and tumultuous political battle over who will succeed her, and it thrusts the Supreme Court vacancy into the spotlight of the presidential campaign.

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.

RIP RBG. Gutted. Sad.
Grateful for all she did. And very very scared.

My friends, the great "Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the second woman to serve on the US Supreme Court and its most determined advocate for gender equality, has died at the age of 87. She had endured multiple bouts of cancer before succumbing to the disease." There are no words.

She was my hero. I never got to meet her.
But I loved her and the way she moved through this world with such strength and grace and conviction.
Rest In Peace, Ruth Bader Ginsberg. #RIPRBG

Truly believed she was eternal- we needed her to be eternal. What she means to our past was only rivaled by what she still meant for our futures. There are no proper words to thank Ruth Bader Ginsburg- all we can do is promise to keep fighting in her name, for the many freedoms she gave us and the rights she proclaimed as unassailable. Rest in ferocity, #RBG, knowing you really did it. (Incredible art by @bijoukarman) #RutherBaderGinsberg #RBG #RestInPower
If there is a God, may She bless and keep RBG.
