Today, the “Fearless Girl” statue wears something special to pay homage to an advocate of women’s rights, the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Today, in a full-page New York Times ad from State Street Advisors, she wears a lace collar, just like the one often seen on Ginsburg, who passed away on Friday. Above her reads the line, “Here’s to the original.”
Ginsburg’s collars were famous not for simply bringing a flourish to her dark judicial robes. According to the New York Times, they were a statement meant, to “unapologetically feminize” the traditionally “male” uniform. They also served as a “weapon” to punctuate her decisions—she wore her frilly crocheted neck wear when making majority opinions and a more spiky piece when making a dissenting one.
