A statement necklace designed in honour of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who served 27 years on the Supreme Court. Notorious RBG!
Her fight for gender equality amounted to a revolution for women in America. She was given the "Notorious RBG" moniker in a Tumblr started by law student Shana Knizhnik (who has written a book with Irin Carmon of the same name.) A play on the Notorious B.I.G., a rap star, Knizhnik said, "Here you had this diminutive person, this tiny human, and nobody saw her as a badass. But when you see what she has done, over years, with such dignity and grace, it represented that." When RBG was asked if it made her uncomfortable, she said, "Why should I feel uncomfortable? We have a lot in common. First and foremost, we were both born and bred in Brooklyn, New York."
Chains are nickel free and adjustable to three lengths. The word Notorious is approx 9cm. (31/2in.) long. It is cut from 3mm. acrylic. Necklaces will snap under pressure – please do not bend.
Moisture can discolour metal parts, particularly gold chains.
£2 from the sale of every Notorious RBG necklace will go to Women for Refugee Women – a UK-based charity that supports women who are seeking asylum and challenges the injustices they experience.
