How does a person rise to the U.S. Supreme Court despite closed doors and legal and social barriers? Ruth: Justice Ginsburg in her Own Words tells the improbable story of how Ruth Bader Ginsburg became an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. It also reveals both the public and private sides of a resilient, resourceful woman who survived religious adversity and the hostility of the profoundly male universe of government and law to become a revered Justice and icon for gender equality and women’s rights. Academy Award-winner Freida Lee Mock presents a compelling portrait as authentic, poignant, and powerful as the Justice herself.
