Book Describes Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Amazing Life

A book about Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is “part biography, part celebration of (her) new status as icon,” according to ThinkProgress.

The news site described “Notorious RBG” as a “liberal book of virtues, with Ginsburg’s life playing the role of an extended fable.” The story includes her tenure as founding director of the Women’s Rights Project, created by the American Civil Liberties Union Women.

Ginsburg “probably did more than any other litigator in the nation’s history to abolish sex discrimination and gender stereotyping,” ThinkProgress reported. “As an appellate judge, she was among the most admired members of the federal bench and frequently fed her law clerks to the Supreme Court. Now, she is one of the nine most powerful judges in the country.”

The book review continued: “Ginsburg is more famous today than she has been at any other point in her career. Popular memes compare the elderly justice to divas and hip hop stars. Young people tattoo her likeness on their body. One widely shared image matches Ginsburg’s grandmotherly face with a Beyoncé lyric — ‘All them fives need to listen when the ten is talking.’”

Ginsburg told author Irin Carmon that “anger, resentment (and) envy … are emotions that just sap your energy” on the court. The full name of the best-selling book is “Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.”
