Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg made history as the first woman to lie in state at the United States Capitol on Friday, September 25, according to reports.
Ginsburg was lying in repose at the Supreme Court on Wednesday and Thursday, and her coffin was brought to the Capitol on Friday morning.
Presidential candidate Joe Biden, his running mate Kamala Harris, and other politicians attended a memorial service for Ginsburg at the Capitol on Friday, The Washington Post reported.
CNN reported that a bipartisan group of female lawmakers, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, lined the Capitol steps to bid farewell as Ginsburg’s casket left the Capitol.
