21 Rad Ruth Bader Ginsburg Memes Ranked From Notorious To Nasty

Ad failed to load

Break out the party hats and festive jabots. Supreme Court justice and internet meme darling Ruth Bader Ginsburg turns 84 on Wednesday! There are many reasons to love and admire RBG. She is the second woman to serve on the Supreme Court; she has a storied career full of glass-ceiling shattering and barrier-breaking; and she likes to drink wine before the State of the Union address. So let's all raise a glass to this feminist icon, and wish her a happy birthday, and many, many, many — can't stress this enough — many more to come. The future of our nation may very well depend on it.

Over the last few years, the internet has embraced Ginsberg, and showered her with memes depicting her brilliance and intellectual prowess. Her quotes on equal rights, reproductive rights and being a strong woman have become feminist rallying cries. And you can't overlook the characterization she is most known for, as the "Notorious RBG."

She is a fierce defender of the principles she holds to be true, but still maintained a close friendship with the justice she had probably had least in common with in terms of their legal interpretation approaches, Antonin Scalia. She's a nuanced woman with the strength of someone half her age (just ask Politico's Ben Schreckinger, who barely made it through the justice's intense exercise routine), and the memes dedicated to her show the mark she has had made on this and future generations of ambitious women.
