University Press returns with another short and captivating biography of one of history’s most compelling figures, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg lost her mother to cancer the day before her high school graduation. Yet she went on to become a tireless advocate for the advancement of gender equality and women’s rights, a judge on the US Court of Appeals, an associate justice of the US Supreme Court, and a “notorious” popular culture icon.
Born in Brooklyn, New York to a hard-working, immigrant, Jewish family, Ginsburg graduated from Cornell University, married her college sweetheart, gave birth to a daughter, graduated first in her class from Columbia Law School, became one of the first female law professors in the United States, gave birth to a son, co-founded the Women’s Rights Project at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), argued six gender discrimination cases before the US Supreme Court – and won five, was nominated by President Jimmy Carter to a seat on the US Court of Appeals, and was nominated by President Bill Clinton as an associate Justice of the US Supreme Court.
This short book tells the intensely human story of a woman who has changed the world in a way that no one else could.
