Ruth Bader Ginsburg Kokeshi Doll by Lucie Kaas to Launch on International Women’s Day

By Rachel Wallace

Few people have permeated pop culture like Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The second female U.S. Supreme Court justice, she served for 27 years until her death in September of 2020, at the age of 87, and has become a symbol for women’s rights in recent years, with a plethora of merchandise bearing her likeness and, of course, her nickname: Notorious RBG.

It makes sense, then, that Danish design collective Lucie Kaas is now honoring her by creating one of its Kokeshi dolls in her likeness. Available on March 8—International Women’s Day—10% of the proceeds from the $53 doll will go to the American Civil Liberties Union. It is a fitting tribute; before she was appointed to the Supreme Court by President Bill Clinton in 1993, Ginsburg worked as the director of the ACLU’s Women’s Rights Project in the ’70s.
