When Ruth Bader was growing up in Brooklyn in the 1930s and 1040s, women were not encouraged to work outside the home or go to college. But Ruth loved to read and learn. She went to Cornell University, where men outnumbered women four to one. There she found her calling as a lawyer, a job where she felt she could make a difference in the world.

This choice set her on a difficult path. As a woman, a Jew, and a working mother, Ruth encountered countless incidents of discrimination and injustice. But these roadblocks did not deter her; she knew she was as smart and as capable as any man. With persistence and skill, Ruth worked as a lawyer in pursuit of justice - first as Columbia University's first tenured female law professor, then as the leader of the ACLU Women's Rights Project, then as a judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals, and finally as an Associate Supreme Court Justice.

In Ruth Bader Ginsburg, acclaimed author Jonah Winter details the remarkable story of how one brilliant woman overcame obstacle after obstacle to become the first female Jewish Supreme Court Justice in the United States, and a symbol of justice for so many.
