The feisty feminist octogenarian recently expressed her desire to remain on the bench for at least five years and possibly even a decade but at 85, any day could be her last.
But at least she now has her very own action figure!
From The Hill, “Company to ship Ruth Bader Ginsburg action figures in October:”
A company that created a successful Kickstarter campaign to make a Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg action figure says it is planning to ship the products in October.
Fctry, a product incubator based in Brooklyn, N.Y., initially hoped to raise $15,000 to create the “Notorious RBG” superhero but instead raised over $613,700 on its Kickstarter crowdfunding page.
Zoe Cronin, the company’s marketing coordinator, said it was “shocking” that the funding campaign reached the initial goal in less than an hour.
“The $15,000 is really the base level of what we need to begin production,” Cronin told AM New York. “We actually hit that in under an hour of starting the project, which was kind of shocking.”
Cronin also said that the company has already given Ginsburg one of the action figures.
“She said she would put it on her mantelpiece, so we’re really excited about that,” Cronin said.
