Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away on Friday the 18th of September. In the wake of her death, thousands of tributes have poured in for the late legal icon.
Taking to Instagram, singer Tim McGraw shared a throwback photo in honor of Ginsburg and her contributions to the judicial system.

With her hair slicked back and her hand propped on one arm of the chair, Ginsburg struck a pose for the camera. McGraw accompanied the gorgeous photo with a tribute that read:

The singer then added a statement from Ginsburg, where she spoke about gender equality for women worldwide. The post was followed up by fans and followers who took to the comments section to pay tributes to the late legal icon.
McGraw is not the first celebrity to honor Ginsburg's memory. While speaking to Today "Saturday Night Live," star Kate McKinnon described her as a real-life superhero who saved the day time and time again.
The eight sitting justices remember their colleague as a champion of justice and a dear friend.
During the recent virtual Emmy Awards held over the weekend, actress Regina King, who went home with an award, paid tribute to Ginsburg during her speech.
King, who won the award for outstanding lead actress in a drama series for her performance in HBO's "Watchmen," urged people to vote in the upcoming election to honor Ginsburg's memory.
Tributes have also poured in from several political figures, including former presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.
In a tweet shared by Clinton, Ginsburg was described as one of the most extraordinary justices to ever serve in the Supreme Court.
We have lost one of the most extraordinary Justices ever to serve on the Supreme Court. Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s life and landmark opinions moved us closer to a more perfect union. And her powerful dissents reminded us that we walk away from our Constitution’s promise at our peril. pic.twitter.com/dDECiBxae6— Bill Clinton (@BillClinton) September 19, 2020
At the time of her death, Ginsburg was one of the nine justices serving on the Supreme Court. As expected, the eight sitting justices remember their colleague as a champion of justice and a dear friend.
Without a doubt, the late justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg led a remarkable life, and her legacy will forever be etched on the sands of time.
