Summary
An examination of the private, public, legal, and philosophical life of one of the most profound and profoundly transformative legal minds of our time. De Hart explores the central experiences that crucially shaped Ruth Bader Ginsburg's passion for justice, her advocacy for gender equality, her meticulous jurisprudence: her desire to make We the People more united and our union more perfect. At the heart of her story we see the influence of her Jewish background; the influence of her mother, Celia Amster Bader, whose intellect inspired her daughter's feminism; her husband, Marty Ginsburg, and his battle with cancer; her years with the ACLU Women's Rights Project, on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, and her crucial years on the Supreme Court. -- adapted from publisher info
