Ruth Bader Ginsburg honored on new postage stamp

The United States Postal Service on Monday released its postage stamp honoring the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a feminist icon who served for years as the senior-most member of the court’s liberal wing. The USPS announced last year that it would feature an oil painting of the justice on a “Forever” stamp, which currently costs 66 cents. The painting shows the justice in a black judicial robe and a white collar, which became an iconic part of her wardrobe. Ginsburg died in 2020 at the age of 87.

Ginsburg is not the first justice to be featured on a stamp. The late Justice Thurgood Marshall, the first African-American member of the Supreme Court, is among those who have been honored by the USPS.
