You can’t spell truth without Ruth.
Just phenomenal! I love the format of the book with its photos, flowcharts, margin notes, and chapter titles inspired by the lyrics of the Notorious B.I.G.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s life mirrors the cultural journey our country has taken when it comes to the issue of women’s rights and equality in this country. She has lived it. And her lived experience informs many of her searing dissents on issues we are still battling today such as reproductive choice and equal pay.
As an attorney, RBG won 5 out of the 6 women’s rights cases she argued before the Supreme Court and she works to this day to protect the gains made for women over the last 40 years. To understand her life is to glimpse where her passion comes from and why she remains committed to the fight for equality for women – as well as men. Her husband Marty Ginsberg was her “life partner” and they enjoyed 56 years of marriage before he passed away in 2010. He was committed to her career success while being a successful attorney in his own right. Despite her own battles with cancer and Marty’s death, she did not slow down or step down.
RBG is determined to use what she has to improve this world while she is still in it. In that regard, she is inspirational . . . quite literally. I highly recommend this book to everyone. It’s a “must read.”
