Discover the life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg—a story about fighting for what’s right.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg became the second woman ever to serve as a judge on the Supreme Court of the United States. Before she fought for equal rights and made history, Ruth was a curious kid who loved to read about strong women who were making important changes.

In school, Ruth wished girls could have as many opportunities as boys. She soon learned that by studying and working hard, she could change her life—and the world. Of all the Ruth Bader Ginsburg children’s books, this one really lets you explore how she went from a young girl during World War II to one of the most celebrated leaders in America.

Ruth worked hard from the start!

Ruth’s mom believed girls could—and should—study and work hard like boys. This early encouragement from her mother inspired her. Ruth would soon find that studying and working hard could change her entire life.

She continues to make the world a better place for everyone

Ruth argued that women should not be left out of juries, but she also argued that people of color should have jurors who reflect them, too. The goal of these changes was to make juries more fair, so they won’t decide someone is guilty (or innocent) just because of their gender or race.
