WASHINGTON, DC – Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY, issued the following statement on the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
“The world has lost a giant. A brilliant jurist, a resolute champion for justice and a trailblazer for women’s rights, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has left a legacy that will echo through history. Justice Ginsburg will forever be a feminist icon who inspired generations of young women–myself included–to follow their dreams, break through barriers and never let gender stand in the way. She will be deeply missed and my prayers are with her family and friends.”
