Everything is awesome when there are LEGO Supreme Court Justice ladies around! Maia Weinstock has created a set of customized LEGO figurines featuring the four women who have served on the Supreme Court Bench: Sandra Day O’Connor, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan.
Also included is a U.S. Supreme Court replica and SCOTUS library area. The aim behind Weinstock’s project is to inspire young women and girls to aspire towards joining or following these women on the bench. With so much opposition against progressive legislation for women, it is more important than ever that girls understand that these jobs aren’t just for the boys.
Plus, the designs are amazing: RBG’s jabot, Sandra Day O’Connor’s smirk, Sotomayor’s curls, and Elena Kagan’s hair are perfect. So far they aren't available for purchase, but we are keeping our fingers crossed that they will be soon.
