Photo of the Day: The Lego women on the Supreme Court


In honor of International Women’s Day, Maia Weinstock, a deputy editor at MIT News, created this awesome “Legal Justice League” custom LEGO set celebrating the four female US Supreme Court Justices. 

Weinstock apparently submitted the set to LEGO Ideas, but was rejected because they have a “no politics or political symbols” rule. (I suppose they’re forgiven for believing that SCOTUS is political, though it’s technically not supposed to be.)

If you want to see this set become a reality so you can have your own mini Sonia Sotomayor, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sandra Day O’Connor, and Elena Kagan, ask LEGO to reconsider here.
