On Friday, February 14, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg visited the Library of Congress to present the inaugural Ruth Bader Ginsburg Woman of Leadership Award.

Though the award went to Agnes Gund, a philanthropist in Washington D.C., RBG herself also earned some well-deserved praise.


The Notorious RBG rocked a pair of sparkly heels that got a nod for her fashion savvy from Martha Stewart!

Stewart was photographed standing behind the diminutive SCOTUS Justice...

Images of RBG's sparkly shoes quickly went viral on Twitter, where people couldn't get enough of the judge's flashy style.

They reminded many of Dorothy's magical slippers from The Wizard of Oz.



RBG wears what she wants, whenever she wants.



If only we could all channel some of Ruth Bader Ginsburg's unstoppable energy.


Is it common for a Supreme Court Justice to have an online fan club?


RBG has always been a force for equality, and that doesn't show any sign of stopping.


Keep up that undeniable style, RBG. We love you!

The book Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg is available here. The book is also available in a young readers edition, available here.

The documentary film RBG is available here.

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
