Justice Ginsburg Seen Carrying A Bag - People Outraged By What's On It

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg showed up at Georgetown University with an accessory that's gotten quite a bit of notice on social media. Ginsburg was carrying a black tote bag with her own likeness on it, and the words 'I Dissent' printed across it. If you're a fan of the feisty justice, you're going to want one as well.

Ginsburg has been spotted before with her fashionable accessory, and you'll find pictures of it on Twitter as people ask where they can get one.

"I Dissent" is the title of a book, "I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark." The children's picture book, written by Debbie Levy and illustrated by Elizabeth Baddeley, illustrates the justice's life by focusing on all the things she's disagreed with and ruled against in her career.

The Brooklyn-born justice was one of the few women to attend Harvard Law School in 1956. She became an advocate for gender equality and women’s rights. In 1980, President Jimmy Carter appointed her to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. In 1993, she was nominated by President Bill Clinton to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. She was the second woman to serve on the Supreme Court.

Ginsburg has been called a 'flaming feminist', and is notorious for liberal rulings, particularly in the area of women's rights. Ginsburg has opposed measures to limit or restrict abortions, struck down gender-discrimination policies and has advocated for U.S. law to conform more to foreign laws.

At the Georgetown Symposium, Ginsburg talked about her memoir, 'In My Own Words', in which she recalls her late husband fondly. She says Marty Ginsburg was 'the first boy, probably the only boy that I had ever known, who cared that I had a brain'.

"He was always my biggest booster," she added.

Ginsburg also commented on the state of SCOTUS nominations in recent years. “Watching the most recent confirmations, I wish there was a way we could wave a magic wand and get back to the way it was and the way it should be,” she said.

According to Ginsburg, there was a time when there was a much more bipartisan spirit in the Senate, and nominations were not all about playing party politics.

Symposium moderator Robert A. Katzmann, who was Ginsburg's assistant in 1993 and who is now the chief judge for the United States Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit, has nothing but praise for Ginsburg. He explains that it's not just her impressive career and her tireless dedication to women's rights that have come to make her so popular with the American public.

"I think it is also because the American public admires her character, her values and feel a connection with her," he said.
