Ruth Bader Ginsburg: The Notorious R.B.G.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg (assumed office 10 August 1993)

On 10 August 1993, Ruth Bader Ginsburg took the oath of office for Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. 

She was the 107th justice on the Court--and only the second woman. 

And, thankfully for those of us who are huge fans of Justice Ginsburg, she has a great sense of humor in addition to her extraordinary legal and judicial talents--she is a fan of her elevation to iconic status as the Notorious R.B.G.

(In case you've missed it, here's the link to the Tumblr dedicated to "Ruth Bader Ginsburg, in all her glory."

Together, all four women who have served as justices on the
Supreme Court: Ginsburg, Sandra Day O'Connor,
Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan

Update: Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on 18 September 2020.
