Ruth Bader Ginsburg: 15.03.1933 – 18.09.2020

US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on Friday 18th September at the age of 87.

Justice Ginsburg’s death has added another factor into the US Presidential Election on 3rd November 2020.

When Miss Jenkins and I took post 16 students to Washington DC in February 2020, we were able to listen to a Supreme Court oral argument. Two of those students, Joe Nisbet and Lewis Hayne, are now studying Law at British Universities.

We were all extremely fortunate to be able to see and listen to Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She was a brilliant jurist and a pioneer for Women’s rights. From all sides of the political spectrum in the US she has been praised for her intellectual ability and determination.
