Ruth Bader Ginsburg Has A Badass ‘Dissenting Collar’

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg has a fabulous collar collection to don with her black robe.

During an extensive interview with Yahoo News’ Katie Couric, Ginsburg showed off her assortment of collars.

She has a “dissenting collar,” which she explained to Couric “looks fitting for dissents.”

She likely wore it for her dissent in the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision, in which she said the court had “ventured into a minefield.”

Ginsburg told Couric that the male justices who wrote the Hobby Lobby decision have a “blind spot” for women’s issues.

She also has a collar for when she writes the majority opinion, which was a gift from her law clerks.

Watch the full interview, Ginsburg shows off her collar collection at the very beginning:

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
