News is spreading nationwide about a Supreme Court bombshell. She actually did it, and people are stunned. They never expected this to happen.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been awarded the 2019 Berggruen Prize for Philosophy & Culture, and with that comes a $1 million payout. Ginsburg will reportedly “direct the prize money to charitable or non-profit organizations of her choice.”
The Berggruen Prize for Philosophy & Culture is an annual award given to “thinkers whose ideas have profoundly shaped human self-understanding and advancement in a rapidly changing world,” and Ginsburg had competition.
The original pool of nominees was a staggering 500, yet she made it all the way through the elimination process until she was the last one standing. The Berggruen Institute, which awards the prize, explained why she was chosen.
Nicolas Berggruen, the organization’s founder and chairman, said, “I am delighted the jury has chosen to honor such a prolific leader in the field of jurisprudence.” He went on to note Ginsburg’s work “on equality and human rights.”
