On the 25th anniversary of her appointment to the Supreme Court, this unofficial pictorial retrospective celebrates and honors the barrier-breaking achievements of Ruth Bader Ginsburg — the "Notorious RBG." Not only does Ruth Bader Ginsburg possess one of the greatest legal minds of our time, she has become an admired pop culture icon. With 130 photographs, inspiring quotes, highlights from notable speeches and judicial opinions, and insightful commentary — plus a foreword by Mimi Leder, the director of the RBG biopic On The Basis Of Sex — this gorgeously illustrated book pays tribute to RBG, whose work on behalf of gender equality, and whose unprecedented career itself, indelibly changed American society.
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 landmark cases; and the prejudice she overcame to reach the pinnacle of her field as the second woman to ascend to the country's highest court. It also highlights the many "firsts" she achieved, including her becoming the first female tenured professor at Columbia Law School and cofounding the first Women's Rights Project for the ACLU, while becoming a true American icon and pop culture sensation.
"Beyond the dozens of images capturing Ginsburg’s lengthy career in federal court, Felix includes tender candid photos of Ginsburg as a mother, grandmother, and wife to Marty Ginsburg. Brief yet informative biographical essays as well as excerpts from Ginsburg’s speeches provide solid context for both her career.... This is an adoring photo history that wonderfully shows Ginsburg in her private life as well as public." — Publishers Weekly
