Fiber Artists Are Honoring Ruth Bader Ginsburg With Lace Collars

A commemoration of the Supreme Court Justice's dissents—and her diverse array of lace collars.

.“With Ruth Bader Ginsburg you have this feminist who’s feminine,” said Weymar. Something about that “allows people now to bring out their lacy stuff and embroider,” to “embrace this part of their history because they’re celebrating someone who changed history for women.”

Weymar herself inherited a bag of lace from her grandparents and realized that many women had similar collections of handed-down textiles.One of Roxana Geffen’s"dissent" collars.Courtesy“That textile’s made by someone, under some circumstance, for some reason, and how you decide to use it, especially for protest, is a political act,” said Weymar. “What is the connection to our past and to women of our past? How do they fortify and inspire us? This isn’t only a female practice, but women are memory makers. They preserve a lot of domestic history--partly because that was one of the few ways they could tell stories.”

In contrast to these traditional lace collars, some artists like Roxana Geffen have honored RBG by paying tribute to her weighty, gem-studded dissent collar.The day after the 2016 election, Roxana Geffen was feeling, “like so many other people, just completely devastated.” Then she saw a

reading “Justice Ginsburg Wears 'Dissent' Collar Following Contentious Election.” At once, she thought it was both a brilliant and subtle gesture, like a “secret message to those of us who needed it.”In response, Geffen started making her owndissent collars

.I started “cobbling them together with materials that I had on hand in my studio, often while I was listening to the news and feeling enraged and frustrated,” she said. At the time, Geffen felt like her collars were “a gesture of how powerless I felt because I was like, ‘I’m no RBG, I’m just an artist.” But as she began posting photographs of the collars to Instagram, people started responding saying they found them empowering.

“That textile’s made by someone, under some circumstance, for some reason, and how you decide to use it, especially for protest, is a political act.”Geffen ended up making 24 collars, some woven others and macraméd or embroidered. After the news of Justice Ginsburg’s passing broke, Geffen decided to

auctionoff the collars to raise funds for the ACLU, where Justice Ginsburg spent her formative years as an attorney fighting for women’s rights.Kanagy-Loux expects that more tribute collars will only continue to emerge in the coming months—after all, lacework can take months to years to complete. In the meantime, Geffen says “it’s been nice to feel a moment of coming together, especially among women, after her death. I feel like there’s been a moment of solidarity."

Senate resolution to honor Ruth Bader Ginsburg blocked after partisan fighting over languageThe US Senate failed to agree on language for a resolution honoring the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a sign of how divided the chamber is over the Supreme Court vacancy. This will all be straightened out soon. It is absolutely ridiculous that America's leaders cannot even agree on how to honor RBG. Both parties are a disgrace. No adult members permitted, thy name is the U.S. Senate.

Photos: Mourners honor Ruth Bader Ginsburg at Supreme CourtGinsburg, appointed to the high court by President Bill Clinton in 1993, died September 18 of complications due to pancreatic cancer. She was 87. Good riddance How many Republicans-GOP or Demagogue Donald showed their respects? Such small little inferior-minded males as they have shown and proven themselves. Paying respect to a deceased SCOTUS Justice should not be politicized but led by the demagogue, watch the lack of honor by them.

Crowd booing and chanting 'honor her wish' as Trump arrives to honor RBGAs the US election draws near, the race between President Donald Trump and former vice president Joe Biden heats up. Here's the latest news around campaigns, SCOTUS vacancy, voting, and more. Do I pity him? Yes. But he deserves it. I thought he said the virus affected virtually nobody and his supporters also say virus is harmless and masks shouldn't be worn here and that yet Mr President is wearing one right now, kinda ironic. Trump can handle it, unlike Biden, who flies off of the handle when someone questions his positions/policies. TrumpNowMoreThanEver2020
