In honor of her birthday, pls enjoy me posing in just a sampling of my *many* Ruth Bader Ginsburg tees.
RBG is petite, fearless and as shrewd as it gets.
I for one, don't think it's a coincidence that we have the same favorite album(it's a children's album from the 70s called Free to Be You and Me and it's DOPE)
Notorious RBG keeps it fashionable as well-she doesnt let a stuffy Supreme Court room or those drab judge robes stifle her sartorial objectives! She takes matters into her own hands and adds pizazz with some of the greatest collars you could ever wish to lay your lucky eyes on. The most important of which is a lace "dissent" collar she wears on the day she plans to vote against the grain. What. A. Babe.
One of my favorite of her quotes came after she was asked the question "how would you like to be remembered?" She said:
"Someone who used whatever talent she had to do her work to the very best of her ability. And to help repair tears in her society, to make things a little better through the use of whatever ability she has. To do something, as my colleague David Souter would say, outside myself. ‘Cause I’ve gotten much more satisfaction for the things that I’ve done for which I was not paid."
For all these reasons and more, she will forever be my idol and my queen, and the one true ruler of the seven kingdoms.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY #RBG !!!! We are so lucky to have you!!!
Steven Pinker is a BOSS.
Steven Pinker is keeping me grounded.
"We dread losses more than we anticipate or appreciate gains"- Steven Pinker.
YOURE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT DR STEVE!
"Fairness does not require sameness" - Steven Pinker
PREACH IT PINKER!!!
(And yes I know I used his name alot. I wanted you to commit it to memory. Personally I believe intellectuals deserve to be household names, because they do the really tough stuff)

In a bold new keynote, *Enlightenment Now*, Lavin speaker Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gotta headlines, which play to our psychcological biases. Instead, follow the data. Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise, not just in the West, but worldwide. One of the world's most influential public speakers, Pinker makes the case for reason, science, and humanism: the ideals we need to confront our problems and continue our progress.
When i imagine the bedroom of my dreams this is it. I don't give a hoot that my husband doesn't like pink, or that married adults don't usually sleep in bunk beds.
Im so freaking excited to have the actual real life @amberinteriors (who designed this perfect room)helping me with my new house!!
Her design skills are DOPE!!
I still can't believe I get to be a part of this cast!!!
Olaf really is the best friend ever.

It doesn’t get much cooler than this. So excited to be bringing the world this new musical series alongside a legend named @lorenbouchard along with Nora Smith and my idols, @kristenanniebell @leslieodomjr @DaveedDiggs @TitussBurgess @RoryOMalley #kathrynhahn and #stanleytucci and a special shout out to my buddy since college @kevinmax333 who helped make this magic a reality! And a another special shout out to @kateoboyle and @elyssa_lynne who are two of the most insanely talented composer/lyricists alive for their amazing work.
This is my friend Katie Hill( @katiehillforcongress ). I met Katie when I started working with @pathpartners where she was the exec director. She's the daughter of a registered nurse and police officer, and went to public schools. She is bold, fearless, diligent, and kind. She's devoted to stabilizing families, addressing poverty at its roots, and bringing tangible and real change to her own community. She has dedicated her career to being a voice for vulnerable populations and believes underrepresented communities are heard. She is running for Congress in her home town- California’s 25th district.
Katie is one of the many women that inspire me-and the kind of person I want representing California.
If you live in #CA25 - keep an eye out for Katie. She will fight for you. I made her pinky swear. #katiehill4CA @katiehillforcongress

Yesterday, I joined 2nd graders at a school in south LA for breakfast. We played games, I spent alot of time explaining that I wasn't Elsa, and we talked about how breakfast makes them feel. 99% of this school qualifies for free lunch- which means often times they come to school hungry. They told me they weren’t able to pay attention in class without full bellies. But thanks to their dedicated administration, teachers, cafeteria staff and parents-the kids at this school don’t have to worry. With the help of #nokidhungry, they all sit in class with full bellies- ready to learn. Join me in helping the 1 in 6 kids in america who struggle with hunger get the food they need.
I never wanted to grow up in the first place.
So I took the @MelissaAndDougToys #ThrowbackChildhoodChallenge and played PIG, one of my favorite childhood games with MYSELF because I wanted to brush up on my net dexterity before I took my skills to the street.
And now I nominate my playful friends @rejectedjokes and @joshgad.
PLAY ON PLAYAS!
I love women. I support women, and I always will. But lately, I've been feeling, what are we doing for this new crop of boys who will become our men? How are we teaching them to be considerate humans, respectful husbands and nurturing father's?
I've supported and helped fund this mentoring community center for the last 2 years - and I have been extremely impressed with thier results. I get emailed pictures of the fun stuff they get to do and have major fomo. The founder, Adam, has often used his own money to keep @inspire.dr afloat in harder times, and he does not take a salary. Everything is put back into the kids.
These are real people invested in building a better world. For all of us. ♀️♂️ If you're interested in supporting the work of #inspiredr you can visit the link in my bio for their fundraising page.
"People ask me sometimes, when -when do you think it will be enough? When will there be enough women on the court? And my answer is when there are nine." - Ruth Bader Ginsberg
While I don't actually believe she means this literally - I do think she means it as a cry to never stop supporting her fellow women(and minorities), as their road has been proven to be much harder. They deserve the loudest cheering section.
Thank you @linguafrancanyc for making this goregous sweater!!!
I CANNOT BELIEVE ITS 2018 and there are 40 million victims of modern slavery in the world. People are trafficked across international borders every year, of which 80% are female and half are children. THIS HAPPENES IN THE US TOO. Btwn 14,500 and 17,500 people are trafficked into the U.S. each year.
Human trafficking is the third largest international crime industry (behind illegal drugs and arms trafficking). It generates a profit of $32 billion every year. Of that number, $15.5 billion is made in industrialized countries. This is why I support the #enditmovement. They have people on the ground, in the streets, busting down doors, manning hotlines, prosecuting traffickers, and FREEING PEOPLE. Creative systematic change. Here in the US and all around the world.
To the man who I've known for an eternity yet learn new things about everyday; who has been with me through thick and thin(and loved my 47lbs of baby weight); who is as interested in PDA as I am; who tattooed my last name on his ring finger beacuse he hates jewelry; who always puts up our Xmas lights; and who never fails to mock my red carpet pose. I love u with my whole @daxshepard

I received a letter from a nice man who asked if I could write a note to his friends who are getting married. I wrote something congratulatory but then thought "Kristen! Wait! You are an old married woman, shouldn't you have some wisdom to share?!" After I was finished I realized what I wrote is pretty much the A-Z of how @daxshepard and I keep our relationship healthy. Its worked for us so far, So here ya go.
