She died from complications as a result of metastatic pancreatic cancer. 'RBG,' as many of her fans famously called her, was a titanic female figure that many looked up to.
Ginsburg was a vehement champion of women's rights and was only the second woman to be a justice on the Supreme Court. She was an advocate for gender equality and reproductive rights.
According to Axios, shortly before passing, Ginsburg wrote the following statement to her granddaughter, Clara Spera: "My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed."
With her now empty seat on the Supreme Court, there is a chance that President Trump will appoint a new justice before his first term as president is up.
