On Friday, September 18, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away at the age of 87. Today, on the day of her memorial at the United States Capitol, the women of the Senate DFL caucus released the following joint statement:

“Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a long-time advocate for gender equality and made significant legal strides in making our nation a more equal one. Her life’s work fighting against gender discrimination under the law is an important example of untiring advocacy and one that has inspired people across the country. 

Today, we remember Justice Ginsburg as the trailblazer she was and for the substantial contributions she made toward a more just and equal nation. We are committed to honoring her legacy by continuing to champion and support efforts to protect and advance gender equality for all.”
