New York Crowd Gathers to Remember Ruth Bader Ginsberg

A crowd gathered to remember the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg outside the courthouse on Foley Square in New York on September 19, a day after her death.

Similar vigils were held at the US Supreme Court in Washington and other cities such as Bozeman, Montanta, and Sacramento, California.

Ginsburg died at 87 from complications due to metastatic pancreas cancer, the Supreme Court said in a statement.

Ginsburg became the second woman in US history to serve on the court and was described in reports as a “pioneering advocate for women’s rights, who in her ninth decade became a much younger generation’s unlikely cultural icon.” Credit: Gabrielle Sirkin via Storyful
