Summary

On the 25th anniversary of her appointment to the Supreme Court, this pictorial retrospective celebrates the “Notorious RBG”—Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Featuring a foreword by Mimi Leder!  

Not only does Ruth Bader Ginsburg possess one of the greatest legal minds of our time, she has become a pop culture icon. In 2018, she celebrates her 25th anniversary as a justice of the Supreme Court. With more than 100 photographs, five inspiring speeches, excerpts from her writings and opinions, and insightful text from noted biographer Antonia Felix, this unofficial retrospective honors her achievements including overcoming obstacles to reach the pinnacle of her field and her work as a trailblazer for gender equality.

The Unstoppable Ruth Bader Ginsburg covers her formative years growing up in Brooklyn; her time at Cornell University and at Harvard and Columbia Law Schools; her marriage and partnership with husband, Marty; her many “firsts,” including the first female tenured professor at Columbia Law School and cofounder of the first Women’s Rights Project for the ACLU; and her landmark decisions as a Supreme Court justice—while becoming a true American icon and pop culture sensation celebrated in the award-winning documentary RBG and the November 2018 feature film about her origins, On the Basis of Sex.
