Ruth Bader Ginsburg
The Ruth Bader Ginsburg celebrity doll depicts her as herself, a US Supreme Court Associate Justice. She was appointed by President William Clinton in 1993 as the second women to serve on the court. The soft plush doll was made by The Unemployed Philosophers Guild in 2019 and is part of the Little Thinkers™ collection and sells for $18.95 at www.philosophersguild.com. Sadly Ginsburg passed away on September 18, 2020 at the age of 87.
Born March 15, 1933
Ruth Joan Bader was born in Brooklyn to a hard-working family of modest means. She and her husband launch brilliant legal careers and raised two children. Despite academic and professional discrimination, Ginsburg became a law professor, argued six cases (won five) before the Supreme Court, and fought for fair treatment for women and men. President Carter appointed her to the federal bench and President Clinton appointed her to the U.S. Supreme Court. Ginsburg is a self-confessed terrible cook.
The Ginsburg doll is a soft stuffed doll with embroidered face (blue eyes and pink lips) , glasses (brown), and green earrings. The face and main body is a soft pink velvet polyester material. The legs are black velvet and the sewed on boot/shoes are black felt. The hair is brown yarn styled into a bun in the back.
The RBG doll’s judge front-pleated robe is a heavy black polyester material with a white knitted lace collar. Underneath are part of the body sewn in white lace trimmed white cotton poly underwear. The bottom of the doll (butt) is filled with HDPE pellets which give the doll weight and balances it to sit up on its own. The clothing is not removable but the robe pulls up to see the underwear and legs. On the lace collar a Ruth Bader Ginsburg Little Thinkers™ tag is attach.
