Ruth Bader Ginsburg, In Her Own Words

Born in 1933, Ruth Bader Ginsburg attended the Harvard and Columbia University Law Schools, and taught law at Rutgers and Columbia. During the 1970s, while teaching at Columbia, she was instrumental in launching the ACLU's Women's Rights Project, and became the leading advocate in the Supreme Court for gender equality. She was appointed by President Jimmy Carter to the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit in 1980 and to the US Supreme Court by President Bill Clinton in 1993. In 2009,  Forbes  named Ginsburg among the 100 Most Powerful Women. Glamor  named her one of their 1993 Women of the Year and in 2012 presented her with their Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2015, Time listed her as an Icon in the Time 100, and in 2016 Fortunenamed her one of the World's Greatest Leaders.
Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, was only the second women to serve in the United States Supreme Court!  That should not be, but it is an amazing feat.  She was a hard worker, incredibly intelligent trailblazer.  She fought for equal rights, not just for women but for all people regardless of gender, age, ethnicity.  She dedicated her life to the pursuit of equality for all.

Small in stature but huge in accomplishments and character. This is a wonderful book and collection of her writings, speeches and thoughts.
