Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg
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 fame she 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."

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.

Audio book on the way home today
Not my favorite. It was a but too political for me, but it did give me more of an idea of what women have gone through.

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. 3mo

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. 3mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 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!

DebinHawaii I have this on my Kindle and someday... but I did just watch On the Basis of Sex and loved it. She is amazing. 💜 3mo

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 5mo

⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️½ • When the subject matter is Ruth Bader Ginsburg, can a book even be bad?! She is a true legend and inspiration. This book isn‘t perfect, but RBG sure is. I display this book proudly next to my RBG action figure.

“I think that men and women, shoulder to shoulder, will work together to make this a better world. Just as I don‘t think that men are the superior sex, neither do I think women are. [I]t is great that we are beginning to use the talents of all of the people, in all walks of life, and that we no longer have the closed doors that we once had.”

“For a while, her favorites were books about Greek and Norse mythology, and then she graduated to Nancy Drew. ‘This was a girl who was an adventurer, who could think for herself, who was the dominant person in her relationship with her young boyfriend,‘ RBG remembered happily.”

The best thing about this book was the in-depth exploration of what is a meme of feminism to many of us and how RBG is more amazing than I had realized. The worst thing was listening to it on audio. I think I missed out on a lot of additional content (footnotes, photos, etc). So I‘d recommend this, but pick up a hard copy. I‘m now extra excited to see On the Basis of Sex in theaters tomorrow!

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is amazing. This book was not. It jumped all over the place both timewise and subject wise. I recently watched the CNN documentary and thought they did a much better job of making her story compelling.
