The Jewish Daily Forward has just released a charming, informative video about one of feminism’s biggest heroes: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. It features a short talk about her life and work—especially her role as a key dissenter, as in the recent Hobby Lobby case—by NYU law student Stana Knizhnik, creator of the Notorious R.B.G. Tumblr.
“Oh yes, I definitely have an intellectual crush on Ruth Bader Ginsburg,” says Knizhnik. Among other reasons why she loves Ginsburg (a fellow Jew) is for “just being a badass.”
Knizhnik closes the video—which also includes delightful photos of young R.B.G.—with the news that Justice Ginsburg knows about the Tumblr and the Notorious R.B.G. T-shirt. (Perhaps she’s even seen some of the fabulous R.B.G. Halloween costumes that you can find on the Tumblr.) Says Knizhnik, “She really appreciates her newfound Internet celebrity.”
