“With an incomparable and indomitable legacy, Ruth Bader Jinsberg will forever be known as a brilliant woman, a judge of courage and a man of deep vision,” Merkel said.
Ginsberg, the second woman to be appointed to the Supreme Court, is widely regarded as a feminist icon.
Prior to his appointment to the High Court, Ginsburg filed six gender equality lawsuits before the court.
Only Merkel was among the voices raised in tribute to the late judge.
Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris and her husband, Douglas Mfoff, attended a rally outside the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington on Saturday morning.
Ginsberg was ‘a Titan – a relentless defender of justice for the age and possessing a legal mind’, Harris wrote in a tweet with pictures of the visit.
Others in the Supreme Court grabbed candles, flowers, symbols and took action on small children. Some showed up to run and bike on a run while exercising in the morning.
Girsberg (৮ 87) died Friday night after battling pancreatic cancer, and President Donald Trump gave the opportunity to expand the conservative majority of the U.S. Supreme Court during the deep divisions ahead of the presidential election.
The mourners have announced Ginsberg’s epoch-making legal career and expressed deep concern about the country’s future.
Actor Jennifer Lopez wrote on Instagram, ‘I’m heartbroken’. “She was a true champion of gender equality and she was a strong woman looking for me and all the little girls in the world.”
