Women to the rescue! Four supreme court justices to be exact! Just in case you haven’t seen this yet, check out Maia Weinstock’s awesome custom-designed LEGO mini figures. The U.S. Supreme Court replica, and SCOTUS library/study aims to celebrate the accomplishments of women in the legal realm, and to encourage girls and women to work toward high positions in the U.S. judicial system. Want to see more? I bet you do!
Not only can you see other awesome works of art on Maia’s website, but she also offers a brief history of each project, just like so:
“Celebrate women in law with the Legal Justice League! For 192 years, the constitutionality of United States law was decided by men alone. Then in 1981, President Ronald Reagan appointed Sandra Day O’Connor to become the first female justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Three women have since joined O’Connor in representing the female half of the U.S. population on the Supreme Court bench: Ruth Bader Ginsburg(1993), Sonia Sotomayor (2009), and Elena Kagan (2010).”
Thank you Maia for making the world a better place with your projects and art pieces. We want to celebrate you by showing off your awesomeness. Check out the rest of the Lego Legal Justice League:
