Unfortunately, the figurines aren't on the market — Weinstock tried to get Lego to manufacture the Supreme Court set, but it was rejected from the company's Ideas contest for being "political," she said.

She and other supporters are considering launching a petition to have Lego reconsider.

"I don't particularly feel that this set was political," Weinstock said. "It's justices and it's really more about law, but apparently they disagreed."

In the last four years, Weinstock, a science journalist, has also designed her own figures representing famous scientists and musicians, many of them women — like leading chimpanzee researcher Jane Goodall.

"Girls definitely have fewer role models to look up to in toys and media," Weinstock told BuzzFeed News. "I know how much encouragement really affects how girls can perceive whether they can go further on in life."
