Timeline PhotosSupreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away on September 18, and this week she became the first woman to lie in repose in the United States Capitol.

In 1973, long before she became a household name, Ruth Bader Ginsburg testified on behalf of the Equal Rights Amendment in the Ohio Senate. Then a professor at Columbia Law School, Justice Ginsburg was brought in by proponents of the Amendment to offer her expert testimony.

Ohio ratified the Equal Rights Amendment on February 7, 1974.
