Mourners honor the life and legacy of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died on September 18, 2020 at age 87. She had pancreatic cancer. Ginsburg lay in repose at the Supreme Court before lying in state at the U.S. Capitol, the first woman to be so honored. Ginsburg was a feminist icon who had served on the high court since 1993.
