The newest entry in the increasingly popular series collects fascinating and in-depth interviews with Bill Moyers, Nina Totenberg, and more, and conversations (with Antonin Scalia and high school students) from throughout the long, ground-breaking career of one of the greatest, most influential, and most exciting legal minds in American history.

From her start in Depression-era New York, to her final days at the pinnacle of the American legal system, Ruth Bader Ginsburg defied convention, blazing a trail that helped bring greater equality to women, and to all Americans. In this collection of in-depth interviews—including her last, as well as one of her first—Ginsburg details her rise from a Brooklyn public school to becoming the second woman on the United States Supreme Court, and her non-stop fight for gender equality along the way. Besides telling the story behind many of her famous court battles, she also talks openly about motherhood and her partnership with her beloved husband, her Jewishness, her surprising friendship with her legal polar opposite Justice Antonin Scalia, her passion for opera, and, in one of the collection’s most charming interviews, offers advice to high school students wondering about the law. It is, in the end, both an engrossing look into a fascinating life, and an inspiring tribute to an American icon.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg served on the Supreme Court of the United States as associate justice from 1993 until her death in 2020. Before that, she served on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit from her appointment in 1980 by President Jimmy Carter until her appointment to the Supreme Court by President Bill Clinton. She graduated from Columbia Law School in 1959 in a tie for the first in her class. She was on both the Columbia Law Review and the Harvard Law Review—the first woman to be on two major law reviews. She became a professor at Rutgers Law School in 1963 and she subsequently taught at Columbia Law School from 1972 to 1980. In 1972, she also co-founded the Women’s Rights Project at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). Through her work with the ACLU, she argued six gender discrimination cases before the Supreme Court between 1973 and 1976. She won five.
