NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Featured in the forthcoming documentary, RBG “The authors make this unassuming, most studious woman come pulsing to life. . . . Notorious RBG may be a playful project, but it asks to be read seriously. . . . That I responded so personally to it is a testimony to [its] storytelling and panache.”— Jennifer Senior, New York Times Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg never asked for fame—she has only tried to make the world a little better and a little freer. But nearly a half-century into her career, something funny happened to the octogenarian: she won the internet. Across America, people who weren’t even born when Ginsburg first made her name as a feminist pioneer are tattooing themselves with her face, setting her famously searing dissents to music, and making viral videos in tribute. Notorious RBG, inspired by the Tumblr that amused the Justice herself and brought to you by its founder and an award-winning feminist journalist, is more than just a love letter. It draws on intimate access to Ginsburg's family members, close friends, colleagues, and clerks, as well an interview with the Justice herself. An original hybrid of reported narrative, annotated dissents, rare archival photos and documents, and illustrations, the book tells a never-before-told story of an unusual and transformative woman who transcends generational divides. As the country struggles with the unfinished business of gender equality and civil rights, Ginsburg stands as a testament to how far we can come with a little chutzpah.

Nearly a half century into being a feminist and legal pioneer, something funny happened to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: The octogenarian won the Internet.

This book features Ginsburg's best-known dissents in a format that is accessible to the non-lawyer, so that RBG's worldwide fans can gain better access to their hero's life's work. Each dissent is prefaced with an explanation of the case to help prepare the lay reader for approaching what can often be difficult to understand legal prose. Ginsburg is renowned for her feisty and fearless dissents, which are her written arguments in opposition to a majority opinion when her side fails to carry the day. Through her dissents, the reader will see Justice Ginsburg at the zenith of her passion, as she makes one last effort to persuade the court and future generations of the error being made. Through this book, we hope fans of Justice Ginsburg-especially the young-will gain better insight into the impact a single voice can have in the halls of our country's most powerful institutions.From the introduction: Why does the practice of dissenting exist? Do dissents matter? Do they ever have lasting impact? Why do judges write dissents? Why, even, do judges write at all? Does the written opinion, and especially the written dissent, impart special impact to the words of the court or judge issuing it? And what do the answers to these questions tell us about Ruth Bader Ginsburg's role and legacy both as a justice and as the Court's most famous dissenter? This book features Ginsburg's best-known dissents-formatted for the non-lawyer-and aims to show them within their proper context, both historically and in terms of how they reflect Ginsburg's life experience and jurisprudential philosophy. It is hard to pinpoint the commencement of Ginsburg's elevation from judge to hero for millions of idealistic Americans. Perhaps it was in 2015 with the publication of Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a New York Times bestseller that chronicled Ginsburg's life in the informal argot of its self-described "#millennial" authors. Though surely the process began earlier than that, on June 25, 2013, with the first post (celebrating Ginsburg's dissent lamenting the Supreme Court majority's gutting of the Voting Rights Act) on a popular blog devoted to celebrating all things Ginsburg. Regardless, it is safe to say that by 2018, Ginsburg's status as a cultural icon was cemented. That year saw the release of two films about her-On the Basis of Sex, a biopic chronicling her years as a women's rights lawyer; and RBG, a documentary about her life. Both collectively grossed over $50 million worldwide at the box office, and the latter received two Academy Award nominations. Indeed, RBG's tagline is "Hero. Icon. Dissenter." Not long after the success of these films, in January 2019, clothing retailer Banana Republic re-released a necklace whose first iteration became Ginsburg's famous "dissent jabot," or the special collar that Ginsburg wears with her judicial robe on days when she issues a significant dissent.What do millions of Americans see in her? She is, quite simply, the embodiment of nearly everything inspirational and aspirational about the better angels of the American experiment. Ginsburg is a gladiator. As a woman, she is one of the first of her kind. To the fight, she brings nothing but a pen. When the lions roar, she roars back, and with equal aplomb. She is ferocious. She is unafraid. Presented here are some of her most noble efforts. Although they are her last words in a losing battle, they have left an indelible mark up on the landscape of American jurisprudence."A dissent in a court of last resort is an appeal to the brooding spirit of law, to the intelligence of a future day when a later decision may possibly correct the error into which the dissenting judge believes the court to have been betrayed."-Charles Evans Hughes

This book offers both a biography of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, only the second-ever woman appointed to the Supreme Court, and a historical analysis of her impact in her role. Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Life in American History explores Ginsburg's path to holding the highest position in the judicial branch of U.S. government as a Supreme Court justice for almost three decades. Readers will learn about the choices, challenges, and triumphs that this remarkable American has lived through, and about the values that shape the United States. Ginsburg, sometimes referred to as "The Notorious RBG" or "RBG" was a professor of law, a member of the American Civil Liberties Union, an advocate for women's rights, and more, before her tenure as Supreme Court justice. She has weighed in on decisions, such as Bush v. Gore (2000); King v. Burwell (2015); and Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission (2018), that continue to guide lawmaking and politics. Ginsburg's crossover to stardom was unprecedented, though perhaps not surprising. Where some Americans see the Supreme Court as a decrepit institution, others see Ginsburg as an embodiment of the timeless principles on which America was founded. Presents well-researched, factual material in an easy-to-understand writing style Positions Ginsburg in the panorama of U.S. history Humanizes the U.S. government by providing an intimate glimpse into the life of a public servant Gives readers firsthand accounts of Ginsburg's words, beliefs, and decisions in primary documents

In a remarkable career that spanned six decades, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg helped shape law and culture in the United States through her passion for justice, advocacy for gender equality, and her unflinching dedication to democracy. Even before her 1993 nomination by President Bill Clinton to become the second woman seated on the Supreme Court, Ginsburg's career was impressive; the first woman to receive tenure on the Columbia law faculty, co-founding the ACLU's Women's Rights Project, and arguing several landmark anti-sex discrimination cases before the Court. On the bench, Ginsburg's opinions made history up until her death at 87 years old on September 18, 2020, though it was her dissents &– sharp, precise, and passionate, especially those that were delivered from the bench, that garnered the most attention. Now, in a tribute to the pioneering justice, TIME presents a highly engaging and beautifully illustrated special edition tracing Ginsburg's life and career. This commemorative edition also features an exclusive introduction by President Bill Clinton as well as high praise of Ginsburg from both sides of the political aisle, a selection of the Justice's most

From Frida Kahlo and Elizabeth Taylor to Nora Ephron, Carrie Fisher, and Lena Dunham, this witty narrative explores what we can learn from the imperfect and extraordinary legacies of 29 iconic women who forged their own unique paths in the world. Smart, sassy, and unapologetically feminine, this elegantly illustrated book is an ode to the bold and charismatic women of modern history. Best-selling author Karen Karbo (The Gospel According to Coco Chanel) spotlights the spirited rule breakers who charted their way with little regard for expectations: Amelia Earhart, Helen Gurley Brown, Edie Sedgwick, Hillary Clinton, Amy Poehler, and Shonda Rhimes, among others. Their lives--imperfect, elegant, messy, glorious--provide inspiration and instruction for the new age of feminism we have entered. Karbo distills these lessons with wit and humor, examining the universal themes that connect us to each of these mesmerizing personalities today: success and style, love and authenticity, daring and courage. Being "difficult," Karbo reveals, might not make life easier. But it can make it more fulfilling--whatever that means for you. In the Reader's Guide included in the back of the book, Karbo asks thought-provoking questions about how we relate to each woman that will make for fascinating book club conversation.
