Washington, Sept 19 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 20th Sep, 2020 ) :New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Saturday that the state would erect a statue in Brooklyn to honor Supreme Court Justice and feminist icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
"Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg selflessly pursued truth and justice in a world of division, giving voice to the voiceless and uplifting those who were pushed aside by forces of hate and indifference," Cuomo said.
Cuomo said he would appoint a commission to come up with a design and artists for the monument, as well as its location.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio meanwhile also paid tribute to the "daughter of Brooklyn" who became a star of progressive jurisprudence and, in 1993, the second woman ever to serve on the Supreme Court bench.
"Justice Ginsburg was an unparalleled hometown hero," he wrote on Twitter, pledging a memorial to her.
"Her memory will live on. I promise you that."
