Ruth Bader Ginsburg expressed her optimism earlier in February that the court will eventually rule in favor of gay marriage. However, the Supreme Court was still deeply divided on Tuesday when they started to hear oral arguments to the historic Obergefell v. Hodges—even though anti-gay activists are also expecting gay marriage to ultimately win out. Accepting possible defeat (and being on the wrong side of history) didn’t stop anti-gay activists from ...

Could the notorious RGB be any cooler (you should probably ask yourself that out loud, Chandler Bing style). From busting gender barriers in the United States government to her sweet neck-wear, we're just smitten with this highly impressive lady—oh let us count the ways! Seriously, let's count'em: 1. She always keeps her wits about her. The 81-year-old justice keeps it coming with common sense and witty comebacks, and sometimes provides us with a two-in-one: ... Read More
The New Republic ran an interview yesterday with the Notorious R.B.G—a nickname Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg herself approves, as reporter Jeffrey Rosen found out during an exchange about her, ehem, notoriety in popular culture.  Of course, Ginsburg is one of the most powerful people in the country, a fact which is not lost as she answers questions about her modus operandi as a justice, or which Supreme Court decision she would over rule. ...

Well it’s about time! This week, President Obama gave a speech in Kansas City, where he talked about a letter a young girl had recently sent him.  The girl had asked why there weren’t any female faces on our paper currency.  She attached a list of possibilities, and the president said he thought it was "a pretty good idea.” While we don’t know who exactly was on the girl’s list, New York Magazine has created their own list ...

Remember Fox New’s Jesse Watters making that wholly unacceptable comment about “Beyoncé voters” (aka single women). If not, here’s a video to refresh your memory:  Yeah, you remember now. If there are two things you should never do as a news personality, they are A.) imply that single women (who control the vote you’re so worried about) are DEPENDENT on men B.) bring our girl Beyoncé ...

I’ve been pretty angry over the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision and I’m not alone. It seems like every time I refresh my Facebook news feed, there’s a new article describing how unjust the ruling was or personal stories of women that can be affected by this decision.  Today, I was instead treated to the song form of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s 35-page dissent of the anti-contraception decision. The tune is pretty awesome. And ... Read More
  At the presentation of the Ruth Bader Ginsburg Lifetime Achievement Award to the iconic Catharine MacKinnon, a woman asked the following question: I worry about the future generation of feminists; should they really be watching Beyoncé suggestively dancing? MacKinnon gracefully responded that feminist pop culture must evolve as the patriarchy adapts, and that’s the kind of work Beyoncé engages in. The singer’s achievements and ... Read More
I usually agree with the Internet’s recognition and subsequent celebration of all the incredible women who run the world: Michelle Obama, Beyoncé, Tina Fey, Hillary Clinton, and so many more.  But I’ve been disappointed in the past by its failure to appreciate one of the baddest ladies in all the land, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Not anymore. During the recent high-profile rulings on DOMA (joyous!) and the VRA (devastating ... Read More
