Our Nation Mourns an Icon and Women’s Rights Champion

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Democratic Party and Chairwoman Alicia Andrews mourn the passing of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and honor a legendary champion of equal rights.

From Chairwoman Alicia Andrews:

“Known for her dissent and trailblazing decisions, the Honorable Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a relentless voice for equality. Ginsburg was the second woman appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court and was appointed in 1993 by President Bill Clinton. She spent her life championing women’s rights and fighting against inequality. We shall not forget the barriers broken and the fight for progressive justice. We are grateful to Justice Ginsburg and send our sincerest condolences to her family and friends.”
