Ruth Bader Ginsburg's Famous 'Dissent Collar' Is Back at Banana Republic | 22 Words

Ruth Bader Ginsburg's iconic "Dissent Collar" is back at Banana Republic, and with a special re-vamp in honor of her illustrious career.

Take a look for yourselves.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg has left behind an untouchable legacy.

And in honor of her amazing work, Banana Republic has re-launched their previous "Dissent Collar" campaign with a slight twist.

We're head over heels for the product.

The heartwarming tribute has been well-received by everyone, with stocks flying off the shelves quicker than the first time the collar was unveiled.

But since the announcement of her death on September 18th, the world has not been the same.

We lost a true legend.

As one would expect, Ruth Bader Ginsburg didn't have the easiest ride.

She was brought up in a life filled with tragedy.

Her big sister died when she was just a baby...

And her mom, who was her biggest source of encouragement when she was growing up, died when she was in high school.

But regardless of these heartaches...

Ginsberg went on to earn her bachelor's degree at Cornell University and she became a wife and mother before enrolling at Harvard Law School.

She later transferred to Columbia Law School...

And after her graduation, she turned to academia. Ginsburg was a professor at Rutgers Law School and Columbia Law School, teaching civil procedure as one of the few women in her field.

But this doesn't mean life was smooth sailing for the young woman...

She faced a lot of rejection in law due to her gender and the fact that not many women worked in the field at the time.

But in 1970, she co-founded the Women's Rights Law Reporter...

And this was the first law journal in the US to focus exclusively on women's rights.

In 1972, Ginsburg co-founded the Women's Rights Project at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

She was the project's general counsel in 1973. The Women's Rights Project and related ACLU projects participated in over 300 gender discrimination cases by 1974.

As the director of the ACLU's Women's Rights Project, she argued 6 gender discrimination cases before the Supreme Court between 1973 and 1976...

She won 5 of these cases, and rather than asking the court to end all gender discrimination at once, Ginsburg charted a strategic course - taking aim at specific discriminatory statutes and building on each successive victory.

Legal scholars and advocates credit Ginsburg's body of work with making significant legal advances for women under the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution...

And taken together, Ginsburg's legal victories discouraged legislatures from treating women and men differently under the law.

In 1980, Ginsburg was nominated by President Jimmy Carter to a seat on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

She was confirmed by the United States Senate on June 18, 1980, and received her commission later that day. Her service terminated on August 9, 1993, however, due to her elevation to the United States Supreme Court.

President Bill Clinton then nominated her as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court in 1993...

Clinton was reportedly looking to increase the court's diversity, which Ginsburg did as the first Jewish justice since the 1969 resignation of Justice Abe Fortas. She was the second-ever female justice and the first Jewish female justice.

She worked tirelessly for the rights of women during her career...

And she famously spoke out about the subject of abortion in 2009, saying that "the government has no business making that choice for a woman."

Over the following years, she earned herself the nickname "The Notorious R.B.G"...

This was in reference to the rapper, The Notorious B.I.G, and this was also due to her firey liberal dissents and her refusals to step down.

In more recent times, Ginsburg became a published author.

Her first book, My Own Words, was published in 2016 and it quickly debuted on the New York Times Best Seller List for hardcover nonfiction at No. 12.

Ginsburg was also an avid supporter of the #MeTooMovement...

And reflected on her own experiences with gender discrimination and sexual harassment, including a time when a chemistry professor at Cornell unsuccessfully attempted to trade her exam answers for sex.

But earlier this month, Ginsburg was admitted to hospital after contracting an infection...

And her admirable life tragically came to an end.

The tragic news...

According to the Washington Post, the Supreme Court announced that the Associate Justice passed of metastatic pancreatic cancer at age 87 on the 18th of September 2020.

People from all around the world sent in floods of tributes and warm messages in Ginsburg's honor...

And it's clear how her hard work will touch generations to come.

The most recent tribute comes from Banana Republic.

They recently re-launched their iconic "Dissent Collar" but with a twist.

The name of the product has now been changed to the "Notorious Necklace."

Back in 2012, when the crystal necklace she received at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards hit the scene, it was an instant hit and people started wondering where they could get their own.

But the piece immediately sold out.

So Banana Republic re-launched it again in 2019 in homage to the Supreme Court judge's style. And just a year later, they have decided to get a fresh lot of stock in under the re-vamped title of the "Notorious Necklace."

And the best news is that all the proceeds from the purchase of the piece will go straight to a charity supporting women.

The International Center for Research on Women (ICRW) will receive 100% of the profits made from this gorgeous piece of jewelry.

Currently, it retails for $98 but I hate to break the bad news to you...

It's already sold out but the company have told People that they are trying their best to re-stock the product as fast as they can.

Have a look at the iconic piece for yourselves:
