DEMOCRATIC PARTY OF YORK COUNTY STATEMENT ON THE PASSING OF JUSTICE RUTH BADER GINSBURG
The Democratic Party of York County released the following statement Friday in regard to the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:
It is with an extremely heavy heart that we learn this evening of the passing of an iconic force in the United States Judicial System, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. A tireless advocate for women’s rights and equality, Justice Ginsburg transcended her diminutive stature to become a larger than life figure.
Battling adversity through much of her life and rising to the rank of only the second woman ever appointed to the Supreme Court, Justice Ginsburg became recognized as a powerful force on the high court that often provided the voice for the disregarded individuals in our society. From her dissent of the case that can be credited to the eventual passage of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act to her opposition to DOMA, Ginsburg proved to be a fighter for equality and justice for all.
Her impact on the court and this country will be felt for decades and will not soon be forgotten.
