Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s appeal to the intelligence of a future day

Professor Sionaidh Douglas-Scott has written a tribute for Prospect

Professor Sionaidh Douglas-Scott, Anniversary Chair of Law at Queen Mary University of London has written a tribute to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who served as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States for 27 years. She writes: “So much has already been written about this remarkable, talented jurist, feminist icon, the ‘Notorious RGB’ who sat on the US Supreme Court for nearly three decades, that it must be impossible to find anything original to write. And already reflections on her passing and legacy have been disrupted by the fierce political battle over whether to fill her vacant seat before the presidential election, and the manifold controversies involved in this—President Trump now says he is “moving aggressively” to replace Ginsburg.”
