As the cofounder of the Women’s Rights Project at the American Civil Liberties Union, Ginsburg played a leading role — if not the key role — in pressing courts to accept legal arguments that laws that treated men and women differently are unconstitutional."My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed," Ginsburg told her granddaughter says before she died, NPR News reported.Even those she fought most strongly in her efforts acknowledged her role as “the Thurgood Marshall of gender equality law,” a title that put her in the company of the trailblazing civil rights pioneer.Former President Bill Clinton, who nominated Ginsburg to the bench in 1993, called her "one of the most extraordinary Justices ever to serve on the Supreme Court.""She was a magnificent judge and a wonderful person—a brilliant lawyer with a caring heart, common sense, fierce devotion to fairness and equality, and boundless courage in the face of her own adversity. They include several federal judges confirmed during his first term, including former White House lawyer and DC Circuit Judge Greg Katsas; three US Senators — Sen. Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley, and Tom Cotton; White House deputy counsel Kate Comerford Todd; Christopher Landau, Trump's US Ambassador to Mexico; and current and former Justice Department officials.Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Friday night that the Senate would vote on whoever Trump nominates to replace Ginsburg, despite blocking former president Barack Obama's March 2016 Supreme Court nomination because it was too close to the election. Whenever she was asked how many women justices would be enough on the nine-member Supreme Court, she would answer: “When there are nine.”Ruth Bader Ginsburg participates in a discussion at the Georgetown University Law Center on February 10, 2020 in Washington, DC.President Clinton’s nomination of Ginsburg in 1993 came about, in part, she and others have said, due to the strong advocacy of her husband. She lost, with the court holding 6-3 that a Florida tax law that provided an exemption to widows but not widowers was constitutional.A sign on the steps of the Supreme CourtThree years later, however, in a case where Ginsburg authored the ACLU’s amicus brief, the Supreme Court did — in a 5-4 vote — adopt the view that laws that differentiate based on sex should be subjected to more scrutiny by the court than laws that do not. She later moved to Columbia, where she continued to teach while working with the ACLU.In 1980, president Jimmy Carter — who had made a point of advocating for more diversity in the judiciary — nominated Ginsburg for the DC Circuit, where she served until she joined the Supreme Court.Martin Ginsburg died in 2010.Additional reporting by Ruby Cramer.Chris Geidner is a reporter for BuzzFeed News and is based in Washington, DC.Contact Chris Geidner at a confidential tip?
