American Jurist, also known by her initials RBG, who served as an associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States from 1993 until her death in 2020. She was nominated by President Bill Clinton and was generally viewed as belonging to the liberal wing of the Court. Ginsburg was the second woman to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, after Sandra Day O'Connor. Ginsburg spent a considerable part of her legal career as an advocate for the advancement of gender equality and women's rights, winning multiple arguments before the Supreme Court.
Her father, Nathan Bader, owned a small clothing store. Her mother, Celia Bader (née Amster), died of cancer when Ruth was 17. The Baders' older daughter Marylin died of meningitis at age six, when Ruth was 14 months old.
After being misdiagnosed with acute diverticulitis, she underwent surgery for colon cancer on 17 September 1999 in Washington, DC.
In March 2004, criticism was leveled at the Supreme Court Justice because of her connections to the National Organization for Women (NOW), an advocacy group for liberal issues. Ginsburg has lent her name and presence to a lecture series given by NOW’s Legal Defense and Education Fund. She introduced the series on 29 January 2004 just two weeks after she voted in favor of the position held in a friend-of-the-court brief by NOW's legal defense fund. Ethicists hold that she should disqualify herself from any cases involving NOW that are heard by the Supreme Court or sever her ties to the organization.
She married Martin D. Ginsburg in June 1954. Their daughter, Jane C. Ginsburg (b. 1955), is a professor at Columbia Law School. Their son, James Steven Ginsburg (b. 1965), is the founder and president of Cedille Records, a classical music recording company based in Chicago, Illinois.
Ginsburg died at her home in Washington, D.C., on 18 September 2020 from complications of metastatic pancreatic cancer at the age of 87.
