Notorious RBG

To the tune of Juicy by The Notorious B.I.G.:

During the summer of 2013, the blog Notorious RBG¬†burst onto the scene as a celebration of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Kelly was working at the Global Justice Center that summer, and the head of her program, Janet Benshoof, was a personal friend of Justice Ginsburg’s. GJC, an organization dedicated to fighting for women’s rights internationally,¬†was enthusiastic to show support for Justice Ginsburg, who had herself made her name by founding the Women’s Rights Project at the ACLU and arguing several women’s rights cases in front of the Supreme Court.

(l-r) Beth Gavin, Janet Benshoof, and Kelly Cosby at the Global Justice Center in August 2013.

Ms. Benshoof suggested that Kelly and her fellow intern Beth Gavin come up with “a parody of Notorious BIG” to send along to Justice Ginsburg. The rest is history (read Beth’s blog describing the experience).
