RBG statue revealed in Brooklyn

A 7-foot, 650-pound tribute to a feminist icon

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a U.S. Supreme Court Justice

who fought for gender equality

A statue to honor her 27 years on the bench

now stands in her birthplace of Brooklyn, New York

"These two steps represent her climb to the Supreme Court, and we encourage folks to step on the pedestal and stand with Ruth to be inspired by her legacy and everything she's done for equality."

"It was made to be 7 feet tall because Ruth was larger than life and everything she did was bigger than life itself."

The bronze sculpture is part of an initiative

by artists Gillie and Marc called Statues for Equality

Its unveiling came just days before

what would have been Ginsburg's 88th birthday
