Notorious RBG
Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg | Irin Carmon, Shana Knizhnik
You can't spell truth without Ruth.Only Ruth Bader Ginsburg can judge me.The Ruth will set you free.Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg never asked for fameshe was just trying to make the world a little better and a little freer. But along the way, the feminist pioneer's searing dissents and steely strength have inspired millions. Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, created by the young lawyer who began the Internet sensation and an award-winning journalist, takes you behind the myth for an intimate, irreverent look at the justice's life and work. As America struggles with the unfinished business of gender equality and civil rights, Ginsburg stays fierce. And if you don't know, now you know.

Really, really enjoyed this. An excellent overview of Justice Ginsburg‘s life up until about 2015. I can‘t wait until the 800 page biography that should come out on her at some point after death (don‘t want that at this point)

Something I‘ve been working on (with a committee) for months finally happened yesterday: Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg spoke at Meredith College, the women‘s college where I work. She was just as amazing and inspiring as you‘d imagine. I‘m so honored to have been part of this historic event for the college which was a bucket list experience for myself.You can watch the event here: https://youtu.be/P5Amfcu2vAA

If you're looking for a good Cliff Notes version of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, start here. The key aspects of how hard she worked to get where she is today, the quiet perseverance that opened the doors for so many of us, and the absolute bond she had with her partner in life are covered with grace and a touch of humor. I especially enjoyed the powerful excerpts from some of RGB's cases and/or statements of descension.

I enjoyed learning about the amazing, inspiring, and notorious Ruth Bader Ginsburg. This book covers her personal and professional life and introduces younger readers to the world RBG lived in and worked (and continues to work) to change. This is a very short read, but it is packed with facts, information, and humor. Though quite informational, the writing is friendly and pulls the reader in, making them feel like they know RBG.

In this nonfiction account of Ruth Bader Ginsburg's life, Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik provide an overview of Ginsburg's life, family, and work, as well as her place in Supreme Court and United States history. I was fascinated to learn about her education and her early career, particularly the cases dealing with gender equality. ⬇️

UnabridgedPod I listened to the audiobook version of Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Scribd and highly recommend it! The narrator (Andi Arndt) is fabulous. 5mo

I had a chance to get through a few audiobooks - a kind of trifecta of the female voice in power. First up was finishing this delightful biography of Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Her "notoriety" had exploded over the past several years but she's been a firebrand for equality for forever. I loved learning more about who she is and how she's impacted the world. The story of her relationship with her partner Marty it's a sweet touch throughout as well.

Blaire Yes! I loved their partnership so much. 5mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I‘m ashamed and embarrassed to admit I didn‘t quite realize the level of badassery that is pioneering feminist Ruth Bader Ginsberg. This book, written by the creator of the brilliantly titled Notorious RBG Tumblr, is an excellent overview of RBG‘s life and accomplishments. I can‘t wait to read more about her life!

PerksOfBeingABookworm I‘ve been thinking about starting this one soon! Right now I‘m listening to the second season of the podcast Slow Burn. After that, I‘ll switch back to audiobooks. 8mo
Samplergal I‘m such a fan of her‘s. I am 63 and remember the pre-Ginsberg days all too well. I didn‘t have guaranteed maternity leave. I wouldn‘t have been able to get my first credit card when I graduated college in 1977, or get an apartment for my first job. I remember a girl dying of an illegal abortion in ninth grade. Thank you RBG. There is work to be done. #EqualPayDay #KeepFighting 8mo
