A hero for many, throughout her extraordinary career Ruth Bader Ginsburg fought for equal protection for men and women. In a gilt frame and bedecked in her distinctive jabot, this woven portrait of Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court Ginsburg cuts a powerful figure even on socks. On the foot of the socks reads “Justice, justice you shall pursue”.
To become the first female Jewish Supreme Court Justice, the unsinkable Ruth Bader Ginsburg had to overcome countless injustices. Growing up in Brooklyn in the 1930s and '40s, Ginsburg was discouraged from working by her father, who thought a woman's place was in the home. Regardless, she went to Cornell University, where men outnumbered women four to one. There, she met her husband, Martin Ginsburg, and found her calling as a lawyer. Despite discrimination against Jews, females, and working mothers, Ginsburg went on to become Columbia Law School's first tenured female professor, a judge for the US Court of Appeals, and finally, a Supreme Court Justice.
