"Quote From Ruth Bader Ginsburg"
2019
canvas, fabric, thread, wood, yarn
62" x 34" x 1"

The quote reads:
The decision whether or not to bear a child is central to a woman’s life, to her well-being and dignity. It is a decision she must make for herself. When the government controls that decision for her, she is being treated as less than a full adult human responsible for her own choices.
— RBG, Senate Confirmation Hearings, 1993.
