My Own Words – Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Mary Hartnett and Wendy W. Williams

My Own Words showcases Ruth Ginsburg’s astonishing intellectual range.

In this collection Justice Ginsburg discusses gender equality, the workings of the Supreme Court, being Jewish, law and lawyers in opera, and the value of looking beyond US shores when interpreting the US Constitution.

Throughout her life Justice Ginsburg has been a prolific writer and public speaker. This book’s sampling is selected by Justice Ginsburg and her authorized biographers Mary Hartnett and Wendy W. Williams, who introduce each chapter and provide biographical context and quotes gleaned from hundreds of interviews they have conducted.

Witty, engaging, serious, and playful, My Own Words is a fascinating glimpse into the life of one of America’s most influential women and a tonic to the current national discourse.
