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.

The young readers edition of this book keeps all the salient points while slashing the length, but looses some of its compelling nature by drastically rearranging the information included, editing the language a bit, and cutting out all extraneous content.

Reading this made me miss her more if that‘s possible. Such a strong advocate for us while at the same time pure class. If y‘all haven‘t take time to read any book about this dynamic and inspiring woman you need to! She was more than a political figure, she fought for what she believed in or she didn‘t bother. We need so many more woman like her. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Leftcoastzen Love your review! I miss her so much . 6mo
KristiAhlers @Leftcoastzen 💜 me too. I feel like her loss sadly was more than her not being with us, but also a voice of reason and strength for women who weren‘t necessarily in a place in their lives to believe something could be better. She was a symbol of strength for us all. Proof you didn‘t need to have a bully attitude to hold your ground and that we weren‘t alone. (edited) 6mo

KristiAhlers I was flying I think to Hawaii to visit my son who was stationed there when her movie came out when she was just getting started as a lawyer. The name of the film escapes right now but anyhow I went and read several books about her. I highly respect her and her loss is a loss for all of us. And I‘m so over how we tear each other down anymore 7mo
KristiAhlers And the way I look at it my husband retired from the military and I have one son serving in the Marines and one in the Navy. My family servers so people have a right to voice opinions so I‘ve learned to just smile and say you‘re welcome when I don‘t agree with someone‘s hatred. My heart hurts with how much of that is being aired. And to what end??? This is why I prefer books. People can suck at times. 7mo
AmyG @sprainedbrain It‘s never been about Freedom. 7mo
TheBookHippie @KristiAhlers “We can disagree and still love each other unless your disagreement is rooted in my oppression …” is what comes to mind. I agree with the fighting for the liberty to have an opinions. Whose opinion is truly free in this situation. There is not a generation in my family that isn‘t or wasn‘t military. They still know privilege vs oppression -which is what‘s happening with this. It has nothing to do with an opinion. It‘s control. ⬇️ 7mo
TheBookHippie It‘s hateful and people take it personally because it is. An abortion saved my life. Twice so I‘m personal about it I was objective before but I was still pro abortion. I saw the movie on an airplane as well. As soon as she died. I knew this was coming. Hopefully we can remember to be kind. I don‘t have a uterus I‘m too old for this to be an issue for me but I‘ll fight like hell for every other person who needs it. ♥️✊🏼 7mo

She was an amazing woman who brought about a lot of good for women, but I was a bit disappointed that this wasn‘t really a biography as much as a look at her work and career, and the changes she brought to US law. There were bits and pieces of her personal life, but not a lot. I listened to the audio and it was not interesting to listen to various laws being read. It was pretty short – it felt like it was abridged but it wasn‘t. This was “ok”.

'Gender discrimination is bad for all; it is bad for men and it is bad for children'. RBG worked towards building a more egalitarian world. Her consistent, dogged detemination made sure that through her judicial interventions, slow but steady change kept happening to make the world a better place. I find a message in her life's work- that all of us can work in our individual capacities to make the world a level playing field for everyone

If you‘d like to read a book about RBG but just don‘t want to visit the Trump administration, this is a wonderful book. It was published in 2015 so devoid of that particular political discussion. Additionally, the book itself is beautiful.

She did so much for us and voting is a way to honor that. Liked how book showed her accomplishments but also her life outside the court. Marty Ginsburg. 😍

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a #FreedomFighter as she fought for gender equality and was a champion for the rights of so many others who were marginalized. I feel bad that this book is still in my #TBR stack but I am hoping to get to it in 2020. #RiPRBG

I could kick myself that I didn‘t take a picture of Justice Ginsburg at the National Book Festival last year. In my defense, I was busy helping folks find places to sit, but still...😢

I remember that she was gracious, funny, and tiny.

The main premise of the book in this picture is that conservative fundamentalist Christians held their noses about the orange one‘s dubious character issues because of the Supreme Court.

Well here we are 😱

Cosmos_Moon 😢 I think many of them believe his, and their own lies. So sad. 2y
BarbaraJean I saw a lot of nose-holding and comments of “but pro-life Supreme Court justices” among evangelical friends in 2016. Now I see a lot of willful ignorance, fingers in ears, refusal to believe the “liberal media” as to who 45 really is. 2y

This isn't about a book, but I've been feeling pretty hopeless about everything lately, and I wanted to share what I've been doing to take action to make the world a better place. I've started writing letters to voters through vote forward (www.votefwd.org).

It's super easy to do, even if you've never done anything like it before. I'd really encourage any of you who are feeling similarly to check it out.

When I searched for a quote to post by Ruth Bader Ginsburg I quickly came to the conclusion did this woman ever say anything that wasn‘t worth repeating, that didn‘t mandate quoting in a social media post? She was brilliant and her life was a narrative for equality, representation, fairness and inclusion.

Maybe I should advocate cloning techniques allowing hope that another Notorious RBG will miraculously be the bench replacement.😳
