SubjectRuth Bader Ginsburg
LocationNew York City, New York, U.S.

A six-foot bronze statue, set on a one-foot base (whose two steps represent the Supreme Court and her climb to get to it), of the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the second woman to serve on the United States Supreme Court,[1] has been created.[2][3][4] It will be unveiled outside Downtown Brooklyn's City Point on March 15, 2021, to commemorate Women's History Month and Ginsburg's 88th birthday.[5][6][7][8] Ginsberg was born and grew up in Brooklyn.[9][10] Brooklyn borough president Eric Adams has also declared March 15, 2021, "Justice Ginsburg Day".[11]

The larger-than-life[12] statue was created by the artist team Gillie and Marc Shattner, as part of their Statues for Equality initiative.[12] Through 2019, only five of New York City’s 150 monuments commemorated real-life women.[13][14] The artist team is known for their temporarily installed sculptures of animals, though in 2020 they installed ten statues of notable women in New York City.[7][15]
