Ruth Bader Ginsburg Fans Share Why They Dissent In Perfect Tribute

Lena Dunham and Wendy Davis showed some love for "Notorious RBG."

There's never a bad time to celebrate Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

In a video premiered on The Cut, men and women in politics, entertainment and other fields honored the "notorious" justice and showed support for the recently released book Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a look at Ginsburg's life and career from MSNBC reporter Irin Carmon and law graduate Shana Knizhnik. Inspired by the justice's dissents on important issues like birth control coverage, supporters including former Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis and "Girls" creator Lena Dunham shared why they dissent, touching on topics like women's reproductive rights, the pay gap and gender discrimination.

"I dissent because the policing of people’s bodies and genders is not OK," said transgender rights activist and TV host Janet Mock. 

"I dissent because I’m in this diner right now and I’ve asked for my tea like three times and I’m scared to ask for it anymore because somebody’s going to call me a bitch," Dunham said. "Also, abortions."

The video ended on a perfect note, thanks to Tech LadyMafia founder Aminatou Sow. "I dissent because we've been dealing with this shit for way too long," she said.

We're guessing RBG would agree.
