US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, an iconic champion of women’s rights, has died of cancer at the age of 87, the court has said. She was a prominent feminist who became a figurehead for liberals in the US. Ginsburg was the oldest justice and the second ever woman to sit on the Supreme Court, where she served for 27 years. In the days before her death, Ginsburg expressed her strong disapproval of such a move. “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed,” she wrote in a statement to her granddaughter, according to National Public Radio.
