Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was presented with an honorary degree by the State University of New York in Buffalo Monday evening. It was her first public appearance since she recently completed a three-week course of radiation treatment for a cancerous tumor on her pancreas. It was her fourth battle with cancer. Her doctors say she does not require further treatment for now. This is Ruth Bader Ginsburg accepting the award.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: “It was beyond my wildest imagination that I would one day become the Notorious RBG. … For the first time in history, it became possible to urge before courts, successfully, that equal justice under law requires all arms of government to regard women as persons equal in stature to men.”
