In a statement to Fox News, Betsy West and Julie Cohen, directors of the 2018 documentary "RBG," said: "Like so many Americans, we are crushed by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Even had she not become a Supreme Court Justice, Ginsburg earned a place in history for what she did to win equally for American women. When we asked her several years ago how she wanted she wanted to be remembered, she said with characteristic modesty, 'Just as someone who did whatever she could, with whatever limited talent she had, to move society along in the direction I would like it to be for my children and grandchildren.'"

The Supreme Court Justice was appointed to the Supreme Court in 1993 by President Bill Clinton and spent more than two decades on the bench in the highest court of the land. She is survived by her two children, Jane Carol and James Steven Ginsburg.
