Champion of women's rights and gender equality Ruth Bader Ginsburg dies at 87
One of America's oldest judges Ruth Bader Ginsburg, fondly known as RBG, has died.
Associate Editor at Daily Maverick, and former US Diplomat, Brookes Spector talks to Weekend Breakfast host Sara-Jayne King about the American legal icon.
She became the first female tenured professor at Columbia University in 1972.
In 1972 she also founded the Women's Rights Project, which together with the ACLU projects, was involved in gender discrimination cases by 1974.
After winning her first gender equality case early in her career, she pioneered women's rights her entire career.
She successfully argued six landmark cases overturning gender discrimination before the US Supreme Court.
Ginsburg later became the second woman to be appointed to the Supreme Court in the US in 1993 where she served for more than 27 years.
She has been suffering from pancreatic cancer.
People are placing flowers and candles on the steps of the US Supreme Court in her memory.
