The Notorious RBG
"Women's rights are an essential part of the overall human rights agenda, trained on the equal dignity and ability to live in freedom all people should enjoy."

Ruth Bader Ginsburg's nickname, Notorious RBG, was well deserved after a lifelong career of pushing boundaries, breaking barriers, and fighting for what she believed in.
She was crucial in women’s liberation movements, in her own life, and for all. She defied odds and stereotypes in her professional career, becoming the first female tenured law professor at Columbia in 1972. In the same year, she founded the ACLU Women’s Rights Project.

She led several movements working to eliminate discrimination on this basis of sex, as well as marital and familial status. Only the second woman to gain a supreme court seat, she served for 27 years until her death in 2020.
We created this book set in honor of RBG's memory and influence on American history and law, with our design paying homage to the iconic white collar she would pair with her robes while serving on the Supreme Court.
This book set brings together two respected biographies on RBG and her autobiography, My Own Words. Learn more about this trailblazer here.
