At the Owego Courthouse, a group of about 40 people gathered for one of these candlelight vigils. The event was organized by Owego for Equality. Irena Horvatt, a member of the group, conducted the vigil’s opening speech, saying, “Chances are, if you are here right now, you know that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was an impassioned, powerful advocate for the end of discrimination based on sex and gender. You probably also know that she gained her legal reputation of success by championing the court cases of men who faced unfair treatment due to sex discrimination and that this was something she did in the hopes that it might move other men to one day consider the plight of women who faced the same hardships in court cases down the line.” Horvatt added, “Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is gone from us now, but she never slowed down, and neither should we. We can honor her life by keeping her tradition of dissent and civic engagement alive. We can honor her legacy by continuing to care about causes that are important to us, and by making that care actionable in our daily lives.” TIOGA COUNTY, N.Y. (WBNG) — To honor the life and memory of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a number of vigils were held in front of courthouses across the country. Members of Owego for Equality said the group gathered to mourn, share stories, and hold a moment of silence for Justice Ginsburg who died of complications from an ongoing battle with metastatic pancreatic cancer on Friday. Horvatt highlighted Justice Ginsburg’s accomplishments as one of four female Supreme Court Justices in the country’s history, and an empowering figure who “inspired entire generations of women to be civically engaged.”
