The White-Necked Raven is a smaller, broader-billed relative of the Common Raven. As its name suggests, it bears a distinct white neck marking, giving the appearance of wearing a white collar adorning a cloak of black. Ravens are among the most intelligent of birds, with the ability to remember, learn, and repeat a vast variety of sounds, including human speech.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, like the Raven, bore remarkable wisdom. This crocheted collar design is inspired by her dissent collars, which she wore proudly atop her robes when her opinion was at odds with the majority – a brilliant visual way for her voice to be heard when it was verbally drowned out. She hoped that this seemingly small gesture would inspire change over the course of time, describing that it is the dissenter’s hope “that they are writing not for today, but for tomorrow.”
