SheKnows is kicking of Women’s History Month by releasing a printable coloring book featuring of one the most influential women of all time, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Playing on the idea of encouraging females to color outside the lines, fans of the inspiring feminist can get creative while coloring in photos of Ginsburg wearing a puffy thug jacket, riding a unicorn in front of a rainbow, and showing off an “RBG” tattoo.
Why pick the Notorious RBG as the coloring book cover girl? The better question would be to ask who else could have possibly been chosen. Ginsburg is the co-founder of both the Women’s Rights Law Reporter, the first law journal in the U.S. to focus exclusively on women’s rights, and the Women’s Rights Project at the ACLU. She was the first tenured female professor at Columbia and the first female member of the Harvard Law Review.
The 82 year-old was the second ever female justice appointed to the United States’ Supreme Court by President Bill Clinton in 1993, and has since ruled on 6 major cases that have paved the way towards women’s equality.
Currently there are only two women sitting on America’s high court, but if it were up to Ginsburg, that would change. While talking with CNS news she said, “When I’m sometimes asked when will there be enough [women on the Supreme Court] and I say when there are nine, people are shocked. But there’d been nine men, and nobody’s ever raised a question about that.”
When in doubt, a woman should ask herself, “What would Ruth Bader Ginsburg do?” For it’s a question in which the answer will always lead a lady down the right path.
