Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a Supreme Court Justice and a pop-culture icon, has won the 2019 Berggruen Prize, given annually to a thinker whose ideas “have profoundly shaped human self-understanding and advancement in as rapidly changing world.” Ginsburg, 86, was chosen from more than 500 nominees. Reportedly, she intends to direct the $1 million prize money to a charitable nonprofit organization.

The prize committee hailed her as “a lifelong trailblazer for human rights and gender equality” and “a constant voice in favor of equality, the rights of workers, and the separation of church and state.”

The Berggruen Institute is a research organization in Los Angeles dedicated to improving governance and cross-cultural understanding.
