Details

Ruth Bader Ginsburg overcame discrimination and tragedy to become the second female justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. Raised in a working-class family in Brooklyn, New York, she graduated with a law degree from Columbia University. Despite her accomplishments, she found many doors of opportunity closed to her as a Jewish woman. Undaunted, she became one of the nation's first female law professors. Later, as head of the American Civil Liberties Union's Women's Rights Project, Ginsburg argued and won numerous cases before the Supreme Court. Appointed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit in 1980, Ginsburg served there for 13 years before President Bill Clinton nominated her to the nation's highest court in 1993. During her years on the Supreme Court, Ginsburg has cemented her legacy as one of the most influential figures in American legal history. In Ruth Bader Ginsburg: U.S. Supreme Court Justice, learn how this trailblazing woman overcame obstacles to secure her position on the highest court in the United States.
