Get to know celebrated Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg — in the first picture book about her life — as she proves that disagreeing does not make you disagreeable! As a child, Ginsburg saw many forms of discrimination around her, and realized that the law could help stop it. But to do so, she'd have to fight it personally first: when she went to law school, a professor even asked how she and her fellow female students justified taking spots away from men! She became a trailblazing lawyer, a law teacher, and finally, a Supreme Court justice. It was a lifetime of disagreeing: disagreeing with inequality, arguing against unfair treatment, and standing up for what's right for people everywhere.
This biographical picture book about the Notorious RBG tells the justice's story through the lens of her many famous dissents, or disagreements. Author Debbie Levy's lively text helps young readers understand how many laws Ginsburg had to change, but equally importantly, highlights that dissent is critical to change the world.
"[The author] demonstrates how disagreement can lead to meaningful discussion and doesn’t have to be personal. This lively, inviting, and informative biography of a historic woman will empower young ones to bravely voice their opinions." — Booklist
