Legal Justice League Spotlights the Ladies of the Supreme Court in LEGO Form
Because we ALL want a LEGO Sonia Sotomayor of our very own, right?
Artist Maia Weinstock has created an amazing tribute to the women of the Supreme Court by immortalizing Sandra Day O’Connor, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan as custom LEGO minifigures! As she says on her site:
For 192 years, the constitutionality of United States law was decided by men alone. Then in 1981, President Ronald Reagan appointed Sandra Day O’Connor to become the first female justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Three women have since joined O’Connor in representing the female half of the U.S. population on the Supreme Court bench: Ruth Bader Ginsburg (1993), Sonia Sotomayor (2009), and Elena Kagan (2010).
This set of custom-designed LEGO minifigures, U.S. Supreme Court replica, and SCOTUS library/study aims to celebrate the accomplishments of women in the legal realm, and to encourage girls and women to work toward high positions in the U.S. judicial system.
WANT. Sadly, I can’t have, as she’s not currently creating them for sale. Thankfully, there are some awesome photos. But, while she did submit the set to LEGO Ideas, it was turned down because it goes against their “no politics or political symbols” rule.
I get it, I suppose, but as a politically active Puerto Rican, I’d love to have a LEGO Sonia Sotomayor sitting on my desk for inspiration. Hook a sister up, Maia! Pretty please?
