“Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.”
— Ruth Bader Ginsburg
I had the pleasure of connecting with the superstar mama of three young children who commissioned me to make a special doll for her newborn baby. Wanting her little girl to grow up in the influence of strong female role models, she asked me to create a doll in the likeness of Ruth Bader Ginsburg to add to her daughter’s collection.
I had seen the Associate Justice in the media, but having lived in Canada my whole life, I had no idea of her story or the immense influence and positive change she has had on the fight for gender equality. I was quite literally blown away to learn the huge impact she made with her advocacy for human rights as I began researching Ruth’s life and accomplishments.
My hope is that my doll will continue to serve as a reminder to this little girl that she can do anything she sets her mind to. And I hope she will always fight for the things she believes in and do so in a way that would make Ginsburg and others proud to join her.
