In 1993, Ruth Bader Ginsburg was appointed as a Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. She was the second confirmed female justice after Sandra Day O'Connor.
Before becoming a judge, Justice Ginsburg fought for the advancement of women's rights in the 1970s. In her 50 years of being a lawyer, judge, and Supreme Court Justice, she presided over some of the U.S.’s most important landmark cases and became a pop culture icon.
