This energetic crowd-pleaser follows Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as she quietly fights her way to the nation’s highest bench.
“This spry celebration reveals that the real Ginsburg is neither beast nor badass, but an even-tempered, soft-spoken mediator—not typically the traits that inspire rousing high-fives, but qualities that honor the slow, uphill slog of positive change.” —Variety
“I ask no favor for my sex. All I ask of our brethren is that they take their feet off our necks.” —U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
At the age of 84, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior’s rise to the nation’s highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans—until now.
