Washington, D.C. — Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur (D-OH), the longest serving woman in the history of the House of Representatives, released the following statement following the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:


“I am lost for words by the tragic passing of the intrepid and beloved Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg,” said Rep. Kaptur. “Justice Ginsburg carved her lasting legend in the laws of the land as one of four women to have ever served on the Supreme Court. As a champion of gender equality and civil rights, she leaves behind a legacy that is rarely seen but once in a generation. Because of her service as a wise, gifted legal intellect and incisive justice, she lived to witness social progress across generations once thought unimaginable. She tirelessly fought for marginalized people every day of her life to include her dying breath. She is a national treasure and a blessing who will be remembered and celebrated for as long as this nation stands. My prayers are with her and her family.”
