Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg dies at 87

FRIDAY, September 18 (NBC News)—Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the Supreme Court justice who was as pioneering as she was brash, died Friday, the high court said.

She was 87.

The court said Ginsburg, a lifelong champion of women’s rights and a fierce advocate for gender equality, died “surrounded by her family at her home in Washington, D.C., due to complications of metastatic pancreas cancer.”


The Prevent Cancer Foundation is deeply saddened by the tremendous loss of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Read our statement here.
