Meet Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s biggest, pint-sized fan.
8-year-old Michele was busy reading “I Dissent,” a picture book about RBG’s life, when Superhero Day rolled around at school this week. She decided to dress up as the Supreme Court Justice and her mother, Krista Wujek Threefoot, was on hand to proudly capture the moment.
“Yes, world. Girls who read are dangerous,” Threefoot captioned the image of her daughter, all dressed up and holding her copy of the RBG book.
“Michele has been reading the heck out of “I Dissent” and decided to dress as Ruth Bader Ginsburg, because she fights prejudice and injustice,” Threefoot wrote on Facebook.
The image quickly garnered close to 1,000 shares and a whole slew of positive comments.
“Your daughter is a beautiful and fierce spirit. I’m so grateful she is our future,” one user commented.
Turns out the picture managed to make it all the way to RBG’s office. Threefoot posted that she received a note from Ginsburg’s assistant asking for Michele’s address so that the Supreme Court Justice could send her a handwritten note.
Dangerous women, united!
