Ruth Bader Ginsburg: The Case of R.B.G. vs. Inequality

Ruth Bader Ginsburg: The Case of R.B.G. vs. Inequality
by Jonah Winter (Author) and Stacy Innerst (Illustrator)

Booktalk: Structured as a court case in which the reader is presented with evidence of the injustice that Ginsburg faced, this picture book biography is the true story of how one of America’s most “notorious” women bravely persevered to become the remarkable symbol of justice she is today.

Snippet: And yet, without Ruth’s help, her husband–who was also a student at Harvard Law School–would not have graduated. He became gravely ill and was unable to attend classes. Ruth went to his classes for him and took notes, so that he could pass his courses. She also took care of him, took care of their newborn baby, Jane, went to her own classes, and was an editor of the Harvard Law Review.
