Dissenter on the Bench: Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Life and Work

Learn about the life and career of the fiercely principled Supreme Court Justice, now a popular icon, with dramatic accounts of her landmark cases that moved the needle on legal protection of human rights! Dramatically narrated case histories from Justice Ginsburg's stellar career are interwoven with an account of RBG's life — childhood, family, beliefs, education, marriage, legal and judicial career, children, and achievements — and her many-faceted personality is captured.

The cases described, many involving young people, demonstrate her passionate concern for gender equality, fairness, and our constitutional rights, perfect for inspiring a new generation to be ready to step forward and dissent when needed! This book includes black and white archival photographs, notes, and a bibliography.

"This accessible and engaging biography of the Supreme Court Justice successfully weaves together information about her life and major court cases in which she had significant influence.... Ortiz provides a good overview of how the court system works and how cases reach the Supreme Court. She also explains what it means to dissent and how Bader Ginsburg was encouraged from an early age through the teachings of Judaism to question, challenge, and disagree." — Madeline J. Bryant, School Library Journal
