The women who have devoted much of their lives to fighting for equality for all humans are, in particular, mourning the loss of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Below, they pay their respects via Twitter to the woman who successfully fought to make discrimination on the basis of sex illegal, who made it her life’s work, literally until her dying day, to protect U.S. citizens from hate.
We each can honor Ruth Bader Ginsburg by asking ourselves, “What would Ruth do?” Using this as a guide in our own lives will keep her with us.
We can also honor what she said so recently: “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.” pic.twitter.com/LYG8dzTLlC

When a giant passes away there are so many reasons to grieve. RBG held on for so long, and I know it wasn’t just for her family – she held on for the world. Rest in Power.
It’s on all of us to save this place. This country and this world. Let’s fight y’all. And let’s win.

The great Zora Neale Hurston said, “There are years that ask questions and years that answer.”
This year is profound in that it is asking AND answering.

While many of us see her as one of the last true warriors, to her family she was a mother and a grandmother. Let’s not forget in our angst the mourning of the people who loved her.
