AAUW Statement on the Passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

September 18, 2020 —America lost one of our most beloved role models tonight, a pioneering jurist and iconic feminist who blazed new trails not only in her own life but in the lives of the countless women she championed — and inspired.  On behalf of AAUW, its members and supporters who recognized Justice Ginsburg with a 1999 AAUW Achievement Award, we extend our condolences to her family, her colleagues and to every American whose lives and hearts she touched.  The nation owes it to her – and to all women – to honor her final wishes and refrain from naming a replacement until a new president is elected.
