Sen. Murkowski: O'Connor Inspired Generations of Women

By    |   Friday, 01 December 2023 12:37 PM EST

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, looked back at the life and service of former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, who died Friday, and said she proved women could be a driving force on the Supreme Court — in ways that inspired generations of young women.

"Sandra Day O’Connor was more than a brilliant legal mind, more than the first woman on the United States Supreme Court," she wrote on X. "She was an inspiration who impacted an entire generation of young women who saw that it was possible to serve our country in the highest office."

O'Connor, 93, the nation's first female Supreme Court justice, died in Phoenix, of complications related to advanced dementia and a respiratory illness, the Supreme Court said in a statement.
