This Friday, September 18, Democratic Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away at the age of 87. The one who was nicknamed “RBG” breathed her last after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. With 45 days before the ballot for the US presidential election, the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg is far from without consequences. Its absence means that now a seat is free on the Supreme Court. The stakes are high for the future of the United States, especially since the Republicans, the majority in the Senate, are determined to name his successor.
A true pioneer in the defense of the cause of women, minorities and the environment, Ruth Bader Ginsburg was an icon of democracy in the United States. During her 27 years on the Supreme Court, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has always fought for civil rights, especially women’s rights. Her disappearance touched millions of people around the world, including Meghan Markle, who is also a committed woman, particularly in the feminist cause, the anti-racist cause and the environmental cause. The Duchess of Sussex rightly wanted to address a few touching words, in tribute to the Democratic judge.
A real inspiration for “Meghan Markle”
As Omid Scobie reports on her Twitter account, Prince Harry’s wife wrote: “It is with an incomparable and indelible legacy, Ruth Bader Ginsburg will always be recognized as a brilliant woman, of justice and courage, and a being human of deep conviction. She has been a real inspiration to me since I was a little girl. Let us honor her, remember her and act for her. ” Prince Harry’s wife was not the only one to show condolences. On her Instagram account, Laeticia Hallyday also wanted to pay tribute to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, by sharing a photo and then a drawing of her in her story. Two images accompanied by the quote: “Fight for the things that interest you, but act in a way that brings others to join you”.
