To become the first female Jewish Supreme Court Justice, the unsinkable Ruth Bader Ginsburg had to overcome countless injustices. Growing up in Brooklyn in the 1930s and 40s, Ginsburg was discouraged from working by her father, who thought a woman’s place was in the home. Regardless, she went to Cornell University, where men outnumbered women four to one. There, she met her husband, Martin Ginsburg, and found her calling as a lawyer. Despite discrimination against Jews, females, and working mothers, Ginsburg went on to become Columbia Law School’s first tenured female professor, a judge for the US Court of Appeals, and finally, a Supreme Court Justice.

Structured as a court case in which the reader is presented with evidence of the injustice that Ginsburg faced, Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the true story of how one of America’s most “notorious” women bravely persevered to become the remarkable symbol of justice she continues to be after her death in September 2020.

A well-known opera fan, Ginsburg appeared at the Met and various other opera houses in non-speaking supernumerary roles such as Die Fledermaus (2003), Ariadne auf Naxos (1994) with U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, and again in that opera in 2009. R.B.G. spoke lines she penned herself in The Daughter of the Regiment (2016).

“The text, informative without overwhelming, is extended by an author’s note describing some of Ginsburg’s actual court cases.... From cover to cover, a lovingly made volume that succeeds on every level. A beautiful example of what a picture book can be.” (Kirkus)
