A Whole Bunch of Ways to Show Your Love for the Notorious RBG: Ruth Bader Ginsburg
The former Supreme Court Justice may be gone, but she will never be forgotten.
One way to mourn the loss of an icon is to celebrate—and emulate—her life. To get you started, here are some ways you can wear your love for the trailblazing former Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on your sleeve.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg wasn’t the first woman on the U.S. Supreme Court, she was the second. But once Justice Sandra Day O’Connor retired in January 2006, she was the only woman on the Court for a few years. That is, until Sonia Sotomayor was appointed in 2009, and Elena Kagan the year after.
One of the things Justice Bader Ginsburg was known for during her 27 years on the Supreme Court was speaking her mind. Long before her death, many of her utterings found their way onto posters, mugs, T-shirts, murals and into newspapers, magazines, and American history books. One of her most famous: “Women belong in all places where decisions are being made. It shouldn’t be that women are the exception.”
Another thing RBG is known for is her many, many collars. The robes of a Supreme Court justice are cut for men—designed so their shirt collar and ties could just peek out of the top. When Bader Ginsburg joined the court, she and Justice Sandra Day O’Connor decided to wear collars of their own. One of RBG’s favorites was a wide white lace one. But her most iconic is an edgy, studded, metallic version that she would wear when she held a dissenting opinion from the conclusion of the court as a whole.
