    Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who lived and witnessed inequalities of all sorts (gender, race, disability, etc.) across all spectrums of American society fought like a soldier for equal protection and social justice under the Constitutional principles during her entire judicial career. This article aims to highlight some of her landmark achievements and their profound impact on restoring social justice as a reminder to ongoing polarized racial tensions exemplified by Black Lives Matter movement, police brutality, Proud Boys movement, and voter disenfranchisement efforts in 2020 presidential elections.
