Ruth Bader Ginsburg Knows We Call Her ‘Notorious RBG’ and Loves It

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 2014

In an interview with Katie Couric for Yahoo News, the Justice says that she’s tickled by the internet adoration of young women and progressives who have branded her “Notorious RBG” and made fan art featuring the Justice as a super hero. Ginsburg even corrected Couric when she implied that the Tumblr that popularized the nickname had arisen after the Hobby Lobby decision. I believe, says perfect person Ruth Bader Ginsburg, that it was after the Voting Rights Act. She added, “I haven’t seen anything that isn’t pleasing or funny on that website.”
