The Verdict Is In: Justice Ruth Baby Ginsburg Won Halloween This Year

The Verdict Is In: Justice Ruth Baby Ginsburg Won Halloween This Year

I’m sure your baby’s pumpkin, lion and pea pod costumes were super cute and all, but the winner of Halloween this year goes to the one and only “Ruth Baby Ginsburg.” Halloween may have passed, but this child’s legend lives on in the real Notorious RBG.

Notorious RGB Talks T-Shirts With Her Face On Them & The Opera About Her

Notorious RBG
Basically The Only Hero The World Needs

Our beloved Notorious RGB (also known to most of society as Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg), stopped by the 92nd Y in New York last weekend to chat with former President of the Supreme Court of Israel Dorit Beinisch and NPR’s Nina Totenberg. She shared that she owns several Notorious RBG t-shirts and that she’s very much looking forward to the opera that’s in the works for next summer about her friendship with Justice Antonin Scalia. She also took the opportunity to drop some world-class RBG wisdom. She says there won’t be enough women on the Supreme Court until there are nine (preach), and drops what I think be the motto of every lawmaker out there:

“The great thing about our Constitution is, like our society, it can evolve.”

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Kind Of Loves That We Call Her The Notorious R.B.G.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg

In her interview with Katie Couric this week, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg let us all know she’s well aware of her internet fame and the Notorious R.B.G. tumblr that was created in her honor. She giggled a bit as she told Katie:

There is a rap song, and there is one using the words from the Hobby Lobby dissent. I haven’t seen anything that isn’t either pleasing or funny on that website…[Site creator Shana Knizhnik] has created a wonderful thing with Notorious R.B.G.. I will admit I had to be told by my law clerks, what’s this Notorious. And they—they explained that to me, but I think that her website is something I enjoy. All of my family do, so cheers for doing that.

She says her children and her grandkids are getting a kick out of the site too. In case we didn’t love her enough already, this 81-year-old feminist hero just made herself an even bigger internet star. Can I be at least a little bit like her when I grow up please? Keep fighting the good fight, R.B.G. [Cosmopolitan, Business Insider, Vanity Fair] [Image via Tumblr]

Happy belated birthday to Supreme Court Justice Bader Ginsburg!  There are so many reasons to love the two-time cancer survivor Justice: from her stance on reproductive rights, to holding it down as the solo woman on the court for three years (post-Sandra Day O’Connor, pre-Sonia Sotomayor).

Yesterday March 19, The Washington Post revealed another endearing insight: the octogenarian sees personal trainer, Bryant Johnson, twice a week.   Keep reading »
