Ruth Bader Ginsburg likeness to be carved into ‘Million Dollar Staircase’ at State Capitol


The trailblazing late Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will have her face carved into the “Million Dollar Staircase” at the State Capitol in Albany, the first addition to the collection of busts in 125 years.

Ginsburg, the Brooklyn native who used the legal system to challenge entrenched sex discrimination — before ascending to the nation’s highest court and ultimately becoming a meme and women’s rights icon — will be the seventh woman honored in such a way on the famous staircase, and the 78th person overall.
