Update: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Responds to 8-Year-Old

Just a couple of weeks ago, we reported on Michele Threefoot, the 8-year-old who dressed up as Ruth Bader Ginsburg for superhero day at her school. Michele’s mom, Krista, posted it on Facebook and it went viral! Michele was inspired by Ginsburg from the book, I Dissent by Debbie Levy.

Well, Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote Michele a letter, and Krista Threefoot took pictures! The note reads, “Dear Michele: You look just like me! May you continue to thrive on reading and learning. Every good wish, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.”

Krista Threefoot told The Huffington Post that they plan on writing a thank you note and that she thanks Ginsburg for striving for equality.
