Ruth Bader Ginsburg Carries Tote With Her Own Face On It

Need one more reason to love Ruth Bader Ginsburg?

The Supreme Court Justice arrived at Georgetown University for a panel discussion last week, carrying a tote with her own face on it.

The front of the bag featured her likeness, while the back is inscribed with the words “I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark,” the title of a picture book about the 83-year-old’s life.

Here she is showing off her accessory below:

Ginsburg also talked about her personal heroes (Amelia Earhart and Nancy Drew), the one thing she’d love to change (the electoral college) and her hope for Republicans and Democrats, The Mercury News reported.

“I wish there was a way I could wave a magic wand and put it back when people respected each other, and voted for the good of the country and not just along party lines,” she said. “Someday there will be great representatives who will say ‘Enough of this nonsense. … I hope that day comes when I’m still alive.”
