Ruth Bader Ginsberg is five feet and one inch of all-around toughness. She’s been one of our favorite women for quite some time. What’s not to love about the icon who has fought for women’s rights for nearly 60 years and has no intention of stepping down from the bench at the spry age of 81? And while some wines and cheeses may mellow with age, not so for our Ruth. Her dissent in last week’s Hobby Lobby case was 35 pages of fine legal writing blended with a healthy helping of controlled rage.
The internet, in all its bountiful, weird glory, has turned the tiny living legend into a meme, a song, nail art, and of course, an amazing Tumblr… plus plenty of stylish ways to show your love for, yes, the Notorious R.B.G.

NYU Law Student Shanna Knizhnik started the Notorious R.G.B Tumblr nearly one year ago, and it’s still as amazing and hilarious as ever. Get down with R.B.G. and purchase this tee—there’s a direct link from Knizhnik’s Tumblr page, and I love the idea of the T-shirt proceeds supporting the busy law student/meme creator.
