Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the second woman to serve on the nation's highest court, entered the legal profession at a time when there were few women lawyers.

She was born on March 15, 1933, in Brooklyn, New York, and died at the age of 87 in Washington. VOA's Julie Taboh looks back at her life and legacy.
