You’ve probably heard of Ginsburg throughout the years (maybe when On the Basis of Sex came out, or the documentary RBG), but whether you have the Notorious RBG tattooed somewhere or you’ve really only heard of her name in passing, here are some books and movies for you to learn more about Ruth Bader Ginsburg, her life, and her perseverance in her fight for women’s rights and equality in the United States.
Let’s start with No Truth Without Ruth by Kathleen Krull, illustrated by Nancy Zhang, a beautifully illustrated children’s biography of Ruth’s life, from her early years to becoming Supreme Court Justice. This is a wonderful introduction to the legacy of Ruth Bader Ginsburg for all ages, quite well paced, and I must say, the illustrations are absolutely gorgeous! After the biography, there is a handy timeline of her life, as well as an outline of the American court system, and a Top 10 RBG Career Highlights page. I know this is filed under our junior section, but I’d recommend it as an nice introduction to RBG to whet your appetite regardless of your age. Another junior title about RBG is I Dissent, by Debbie Levy, where Ginsburg “proves that disagreeing does not make you disagreeable!” (from Bibliocommons).
