Description


"This is an adoring photo history that wonderfully shows Ginsburg in her private life as well as public."--Publishers Weekly

This unofficial pictorial retrospective celebrates and honors the barrier-breaking achievements of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (1933-2020), and is the first comprehensive, fully illustrated bio-pic book on her life and work.

Features a foreword by Mimi Leder, award-winning filmmaker and director of the 2018 major motion picture about RBG, On the Basis of Sex.

Not only did Ruth Bader Ginsburg--the second woman appointed to the Supreme Court--possess one of the greatest legal minds of our time, she was an admired cultural icon whose work on behalf of gender equality, and whose unprecedented career itself, indelibly changed American society. This gorgeously illustrated book, published in 2018 on her 25th anniversary as a justice of the Supreme Court, celebrates Ginsburg's legacy with 130 photographs, inspiring quotes, highlights from notable speeches and judicial opinions, and insightful commentary.
