    Project Learning English by myself through children's books. I loved this book and Mrs. Ruth Ginsburg's life and sense of justice. "But at law, Ruth proved to be a natural. Soon she stood out in her class as a star student. That wasn't the only reason she stood out at Harvard Law School in 1956. It was also because she was female. There were only nine women in her class - and more than five hundred men! None of the teachers were female.

"But at law, Ruth proved to be a natural. Soon she stood out in her class as a star student. That wasn't the only reason she stood out at Harvard Law School in 1956. It was also because she was female. There were only nine women in her class - and more than five hundred men! None of the teachers were female. Harvard Law had only started accepting women students a few years earlier. The large classroom building still had no women's bathroom. Ruth sometimes had to make a mad dash for a makeshift restroom a block away. Being the only girl in a class was hard, especially for shy Ruth. She felt like she was always on display. Even worse, she was afraid of giving a wrong answer. That might make men think women were unfit to become lawyers." (Pages 42, 43 and 44) "Each spring, big law firms compete to hire graduates from the best law schools in the country. Ruth was an outstanding student. She had graduated at the very top of her class at a top law school. Job offers were bound to flood in. Right? Wrong! Not a single one came! On their job postings, law firms stated "MEN ONLY". Ten, twenty, thirty... more than forty firms rejected her application! Not only was she female, but Ruth also had another strike against her: She was a mother. Bosses didn't think a young mom could put in long hours like men did. Finally, with the help of one of her law professors, Ruth landed a job working as a clerk (assistant) to a federal judge. Then, in 1963, a new path opened for Ruth, Rutgers University in New Jersey hired her to teach law. She became one of the few female law professors in the nation. There was one catch: Her pay was less than that of the male teachers. Men needed more money in order to support their families, the dean explained. Ruth asked if that meant a single man with no children would also get paid less. The answer was no. To Ruth, that didn't make sense. And it was totally unfair. But Ruth stayed quiet... for now." (Pages 51, 52 and 53)

    Who Headquarters for another win! I love these books. Occasionally I wonder why a certain individual is chosen for one of these biographies. But Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a fantastic, high quality addition. Go, Ruth, go!

    An excellent book to introduce RBG to the young kids of today, especially girls and how women had to fight for the rights they take granted today. Saw "On the Basis of Sex" when it came out and loved it. While reading this, I kept going back to the movie and picturing RBG going through the struggles and how supportive her husband was in everything. Love all the books in this series. My older kids read them still.

    For Women's Month I wanted to read about exceptional women in history. I found this on display at the library and decided to check it out. It did not disappoint, I enjoyed learning about Ruth and her journey in life. I hope to find more of these books at the library to continue learning about women in history.

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg is one of the most inspirational women I've ever read about. She was super smart and tied to the top of her class out of 500 men! She fought her way up to the Supreme Court and didn't stay quiet when it came to women's rights. She wasn't shy to voice her opinion even if it was different than what others thought. I think Ruth is an amazing role model for people to follow.

    Inspiring biography of an inspiring subject and history. This book made me very grateful to the women - mothers, lawyers, students, and all kinds of workers - that made my free life in this country possible. I recommend for children and adults!
