If you’re looking for a little symbol of strength to carry you through 2019 and beyond, you’re in luck.
Banana Republic is bringing back Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s original “dissent collar necklace,” to support the work of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Women’s Rights Project. It’s an arm of the ACLU that was co-founded by Ginsburg to advocate for gender equality and women’s economic rights.
The justice reportedly came to own the collar in 2012 after receiving it in a gift bag at Glamour’s Woman Of The Year event. It retails for $98, and half the purchase price of each supports the ACLU’s Women’s Rights Fund. It’s a nod to a 2014 interview with Katie Couric in which Ginsburg described in the Banana Republic collar as “fitting for dissents.”
“The ACLU’s Women’s Rights Project fights for gender equality through litigation, advocacy and public education awareness,” according to Lenora Lapidus, director of the ACLU Women’s Rights Project. “The proceeds from sales of this necklace will be tremendously helpful as we fight gender-based discrimination in all its forms: in the workplace, in schools, in housing, in the criminal justice system, in the home and in public.”
The iconic collar is made of glass stones and has a velvet tie at the back. It’s available for pre-order now, but will be fully available online at Banana Republic beginning Jan. 15.
Banana Republic first unveiled the collar necklace in 2012, but this is the first time the collar has been reissued as a tribute to women’s equality. If you want it, though, you might want to move fast. This “dissent collar” is only available while supplies last, and it’s being re-issued in limited quantities.
