  • Description

    Only six months after her death, a statue of Ruth Bader Ginsburg was unveiled, on March 12th, in Brooklyn, NY, the place she was “born and bred.”
    Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a lawyer who devoted her life to fighting for justice and equal rights for all. She worked within the system to establish equality in American law and correct injustices inside the system. In 1993, she was nominated to the US Supreme Court, becoming the second female US Supreme Court justice, a position she passionately fulfilled till she passed away in 2020.
    The statue was created by the NYC artistic duo, Gillie and Marc, who is famous for creating innovative public sculptures in more than 250 cities for more than 27 years, and still counting. Among their many projects is the Statues For Equality, aiming to promote the erection of statues of notable women in every big city. This statue of Bader Ginsburg is part of this project.
    Justice Ginsburg’s statue depicts her standing, wearing her justice gown, and her famous jabot in a way that “the public has an opportunity to stand at her side, and gain inspiration from her journey fighting for equal rights.” – Gillie and Marc, 2021. It is the 7th statue honoring women in NYC.
