Dear LEGO, We Want The Supreme Court Women’s Legal Justice League Set for Our Daughters

Supreme Court women LEGO setMaia Weinstock, a deputy editor at MIT News, recently created a custom LEGO set called the “Legal Justice League”, showcasing the four women who have been the only female U.S. Supreme Court Justices, in honor of International Women’s Day. There has been so much positive reaction to the scenes she’s created, showing our handful of women Justices hard at work, many have asked where they can purchase it for their daughters.

Sadly, it isn’t going to be produced.

According to Weinstock’s site, the set was “already submitted to LEGO Ideas, but was rejected by the company for going against their ‘no politics or political symbols’ rule.”

Let’s remind LEGO that, by definition, the Supreme Court of the United States isn’t a political institution (even though sometimes it might feel like one) and there is a market for this set meant to encourage girls “to work toward high positions” in the legal world. LEGO produces plenty of products promoting fictional super-heroes, as well as pink-themed sets aimed at girls. So why not have a classic set that highlights the four American women who have risen to the highest position in our legal system?

Please sign our first TBS petition calling for LEGO to create the Legal Justice League set for sale so girls (and boys) can see the real life women super-heroes of the U.S. Supreme Court.  Thanks!
