So we all knew Ruth Bader Ginsburg is amazing.  But lately it seems like word’s gotten out—her fan base is expanding well past the political sphere and into the pop-culture world.  Thanks to a rising social media trend in her honor, Ginsberg has been featured on t-shirts, is the subject of the brilliant tumblr Notorious RBG, and has been the inspiration for a rap music video and many, many memes. 

In an interview with Katie Couric this week, Ginsburg gives a tour of her fabulous Supreme Court collar collection, talks about women’s rights and the Hobby Lobby decision, and reacts to her newfound internet fame. 


Isn’t she amazing?  I want her to be ruler of the universe and my grandma at the same time. 

I also completely love how she’s totally feminist and fabulous and 100% proud of it.  Plus, she’s in a position to advocate for her beliefs—and she uses that position well. 

I’m honestly convinced that she’s the coolest person ever.
