      For every millennial who thinks Lena Dunham is an important feminist, pick up this tidy gem of the feminist movement and fucking digest. Ruth Bader Ginsburg is bae.

    2. Petra X on said:

      I'm not a feminist although I was once until I realised that I didn't want to stop at having equal opportunities and rewards in a man's world. I wanted the world to become more female-centric. Women and men are quite different in many ways, we have strengths and priorities and ways of working things out, and now we've tried the man's way, let's move on to the women's. When I read that Ruth Bader Ginsburg said, "“Women will only have true equality when men share with them the responsibility of [...]

    3. Carol. on said:

      I'm still mad at RBG.Appointed by Clinton in 1993, Ruth was only the second female on the Supreme Court (That's right, kids: the mens used to think that mixing a career and family was too much for us. It wasn't until 1993 that we had enough juice to play in the most powerful court. Did you vote for Hilary?). Ruth Bader Ginsberg has acquired a bit of a cult following since then, perhaps because our perceptions of both petite, reticent women, and elderly women don't always square with the powerhou [...]

      Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg“So now the perception is, yes, women are here to stay. And when I’m sometimes asked when will there be enough [women on the Supreme Court]? And I say when there are nine, people are shocked. But there’d been nine men, and nobody’s ever raised a question about that.”“Women will only have true equality when men share with them the responsibility of bringing up the next generation.”Ruth Bader Ginsburg**************************** [...]

      This delightful book is a love letter to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. A well-written look into the work she has done on behalf of women for the past 55+ years (it was conversational while obviously incredibly well-researched, and as a reformed lawyer I appreciated the way the authors described the legal system in a way that was both accurate AND accessible), as well as a beautiful tribute to her marriage to Marty Ginsburg. I cried several times, was inspired to fight harder for the things I beli [...]

    6. Jamise // Spines & Vines on said:

      I originally gave this delightful book a 4 star rating. As I started thinking of my review an overwhelming sense of enjoyment came over me as I remembered my feelings as I read this story. Therefore, I'm changing my rating to 5 stars.Notorious RBG gives you a glimpse inside the life and iconic career of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. After reading this book, my level of respect for Justice Ginsburg deepened. She's a true feminist who has lived her life as a die hard champion for civil rights, wome [...]

    7. Taryn Pierson on said:

      I had just finished listening to Notorious RBG when news broke of Antonin Scalia’s death, and I’m glad for it, because I had a much more nuanced reaction than I would have had without the benefit of the insider knowledge Carmon and Knizhnik provide about the unlikely friendship between outspoken Reagan appointee Scalia and surprise feminist icon Ginsburg. It would have been much easier to write Scalia off as a blowhard conservative (which part of me still believes he was), but clearly RBG sa [...]

    8. Ian on said:

      I suspect I'm giving 5 Stars to RBG rather than the book. What a woman. I don't cheer at the end of movies. I think it's dumb. I just want to say, "They can't hear you!!!"But I felt like cheering after reading a few of her dissents. She's all classd I guess the book is okay.

    9. Diane on said:

      I loved this book! Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is such an inspiring person — she's spent much of her law career working toward empowering women and seeking gender equality. This book is filled with good stories and photographs about RBG's life. My favorite parts were about her experiences as a female law student, the gender discrimination cases she's worked on, and stories about her marriage to Marty, who was by all accounts an amazing husband and partner. I highly recommend this [...]

    10. Liz on said:

      This was a selection of one of my book clubs. I admit it's not a book I would have chosen to read on my own. And it starts off very dry. Still, it does a good job of conveying her ideas on how the law should work and how it should be changed, especially why Roe v. Wade continues to be at risk of being overturned. So many of both the cases she argued and the ones she opined on concern women’s equality issues.The Chapter on her marriage is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face. And then a few [...]

    11. Trish on said:

      It is hard to argue with Antonin Scalia when he described Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg as “an intelligent woman and a nice woman and a considerate woman—all the qualities you like in a person.” Add to that, she is a persistent person and a principled person and a fair person—all the qualities you want in a lawyer.This work is an act of homage. When R.B.G. gave two dissents on one day, on June 25, 2013, fans of her opinions started drawing, composing songs, writing poems. She [...]

      guninactone.wordpress/201A few things I took away from this delightful book that should convince you to read about an amazing woman.RBG is in her 80’s and does 20 push-ups a day. 20 PUSH-UPS A DAY. If that doesn’t tell you she’s a bad-ass that you should want to read about, read on. This woman was a mother of a 1 year-old, 1 of 9 women in her class at Harvard law when her husband Marty was diagnosed with cancer. Marty was also a law student, a year ahead of RBG at Harvard. RBG came home fr [...]

    13. Tiffany Reisz on said:

      Very cute. Heavy on pics and light on substance but it was a super fun read. I can imagine a 14 year old girl reading this and deciding to go to Law School to be the next RBG and that's a great thing.

    14. Jessica on said:

      This is a fun, informative examination into the life of one of my personal heroes. It doesn't give the kind of depth that an academic bio would provide, but it gets the job done with humor and admiration. Now there's a coloring book, so I guess I'm gonna have to jump on that trend:

    15. Adam on said:

      2 1/2 stars would probably be more accurate, but eh. Ginsburg is an excellent subject for a biography, but I get the feeling that the author of this book just didn't want to work very hard. Which, you know, fine, it's called "Notorious RBG" so it's obviously not supposed to be the last definitive word or anything, but a bit more depth would be nice.Here's an example: one chapter ends with Ginsburg leaving America for Sweden to live for a year and research a book on Swedish civil procedure. This [...]

    16. Marta on said:

      This book is a joy to read - beautiful, educational, inspirational, and lovingly written by enthusiastic young admirers of this fascinating woman."Fight for the things you care about, but do it in a way that will lead lead others to join you." RBG has spent her entire life working for equality for everyone. She argued that discrimnitation based on sex hurts both women and men. She tirelessly, case by case worked on removing each obstacle, building precedents, following her principle of increment [...]

    17. Melanie on said:

      I had a difficult time deciding what rating to give this book. On the one hand, I try hard to reserve my five star reviews for books that are among my absolute favorites and for things that I would readily term literary masterpieces. Staring at the rating button for this book, debating which of the little line of stars I should highlight, I very nearly selected 4 stars instead of 5. In the end, however, I realized that this book actually is a new favorite, and, if I were trying to find critiques [...]

    18. Kelly Hager on said:

      I knew before I read this book that I liked Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. But I wasn't very familiar with her before she became a justice on the Supreme Court. (Given her age and the fact that she was only the second female justice---and the fact that there have only been four---I knew she was a trailblazer, but I didn't understand just how amazing her life has been.)The book includes excerpts of opinions she's written and has a lot of pictures, but the real joy (for me) is in learning more about [...]

    19. Jessica on said:

      I had to put this down quite a few times and choke down rage over the legal and social discrimination women (and men) faced, but I'd pick it up again and then be relieved to see how RBG came at the cases methodically, working incrementally to dismantle a system that saw women as property or less worthy (or men as less worthy of being caretakers!). I had no idea she'd been with the ACLU, and her decades-long love affair with her husband was beautiful to read about. I really, really recommend this [...]

    20. Connie on said:

      Co-author Shana Knizhnik created a blog in 2013 devoted to the Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The millennial NYU law student set up the blog as "fan-nonfiction" after Ginsburg read several liberal dissents from the bench. The late Notorious BIG was a famous rapper, and the blog name "Notorious RBG" is a play on his name. The blog was fresh, colorful, and celebrated Ginsburg's contributions to feminism, equal rights, and voting rights. The blog led to the publication of this book seve [...]

    21. Jean Poulos on said:

      When the Supreme Court reported its verdict in Shelby County v Holder which discarded a crucial provision of the Voting Rights Act; Justice Ginsburg read her dissent from the bench, which has been reported as the equivalent of shaming your spouse in front of dinner guests. More unusual still was that she’d read two other dissents from the bench the day before.The event triggered law student Shana Knizhnik to begin a blog called “Notorious RBG.” It seemed that suddenly Ginsburg became a sta [...]

    22. Holly on said:

      I didn't know anything about this book at the outset, only noticed it had a long wait at the library - so I jumped on that bandwagon. I assumed it was a graphic novel/comic book. Actually turned out to be a biography of the Justice told from a feminist viewpoint for an audience of millennials. The hagiography was thick and some of it was really dumbed down/simplified; I could have done without the chapter on Ginsburg's sartorial choices and fashion accessories. But in the end I learned many thin [...]

    23. Don Bradshaw on said:

      An amazing book about a totally remarkable individual who has given so much to this country. Her devotion to the constitution is unfailing. There are numerous pictures that follow RBG through her life. At 83 she has faced monumental adversity yet came back stronger and more determined every time. With no desire to retire from the bench, I can only look forward to great things from this irrepressible woman.

    24. Antoinette Perez on said:

      Oh, my heavens. RBG is a fave. This book, although it read more like a textbook than a bio, does her life and her career justice. (Hahahahaha. ???) I didn't think I could adore her more, but I do after reading this. And, thanks to the journalistic style of writing, I actually understand more of the nuances of cases past (Roe v. Wade) than I did before.My big takeaways: Believe with conviction, and act strategically, collegially. Play the long game. Feminism is truly for everyone's benefit. I wil [...]

    25. Colleen on said:

      Without getting too preachy, this is one of the most inspiring books about feminism in practice that I've ever read. RBG is an inspiration on many levels, but a few things really stuck with me. While she remains committed to feminist ideals, she truly embodies what feminism is all about - equality of the sexes. To that end, she has worked tirelessly to confront sexism against men, and to help break down the embedded cultural barriers that often prevent men from being able to serve as equal partn [...]

      Did you know that if your grandmother worked for GE that she would have been fired for getting married? Or that she may have been forced to leave the military if she got pregnant? Or that if she was a woman of color she may have been part of a mass sterilization? These and many, many more truths were hard to stomach as I read through this marvelous book. The obstacles that RBG had to overcome in her own quiet manner are incredibly inspiring. She had the greatest husband who was her equal. One of [...]

    27. Maureen on said:

      First of all, RBG is a phenomenal human being- period. How lucky are we to have had her do all the hard work for equal rights that she has done in our lifetime? Super effing lucky! This is a great book and should be required reading in every history class whether at the high school or college level. I learned so much about the impact that RBG has had on our everyday lives and I am simply in awe of her! A must read - not to be missed!

    28. Shannon on said:

      Definite 4.5even better than I thought it would be. So much <3 to RBG.

    29. Jane Stewart on said:

      I admire the woman, but the book could have been better. And there should have been pictures in the PDF.It’s about legal opinions and someone who works hard and works a lot. It’s not exciting, but it was interesting. I learned some things. RBG was appointed by Clinton. Many thought she was not liberal enough. But she supported and pushed for women’s issues like abortion and equal pay.I loved her relationship with her husband - the way he supported her - the things he did for her. Brought t [...]
