Women trailblazers in business ranging from General Motors’ Mary Barra to Ariel Investments’ Mellody Hobson and YouTube’s Susan Wojcicki are paying tribute to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who helped pave the way for their careers through her tireless advocacy for working women.
Below, we rounded up the tweets of prominent female players across industries as they pay homage to the woman who helped make their successes possible.
General Motors CEO & Chair Mary Barra
I join the nation in mourning the passing of Justice Ginsburg. She was an incredible trailblazer who fought to the end. She showed us that all women belong in any industry. My condolences are with her family – we will continue her work for equality and justice for all. #RIPRBG

Former PepsiCo CEO & Chair Indra Nooyi
Women don’t belong on the sidelines. They belong in the ring fighting. Ruth Bader Ginsburg dedicated her life’s work to this belief and generations of women are stronger for it. We lost a genuine heroine, but we must keep our gloves on and fight to keep her legacy alive. pic.twitter.com/bs1UnPwnPR

Accenture CEO Julie Sweet
We have lost a beacon in Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a role model and fierce advocate for equality and for doing something “outside yourself”. Our greatest tribute must be to act—to carry on her fight for equality and justice for all, with more energy than ever—to make enduring change.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, thank you for your legacy. You inspired generations of women, including myself, my sisters & my daughters. Thank you for leading the way and showing all of us that we can work together to uphold justice.

Ariel Investments Co-CEO & President Mellody Hobson
“We should not be held back from pursuing our full talents, from contributing what we could contribute to the society because we fit a certain mold – because we belong to a group that historically has been the object of discrimination.” RIP RBG.

Synchrony CEO Margaret Keane
We’ve lost a giant. Ruth Bader Ginsburg changed the world for women. She built a career – even before her appointment to the #SCOTUS – fighting tirelessly for women and gender equality. As we honor her life, let’s do so committed to equity and equal treatment for all. #RBG pic.twitter.com/4qPaZyValm

Real estate mogul & “Shark Tank” star Barbara Corcoran
I’m so saddened by Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death. She dedicated her entire life to public service and defined what commitment and love of our country should be. She’s a role model for me as she is for so many others who love our country.
