This collection of some of her most essential writings shows how much of an impact Justice Ginsburg has had on our Justice system.  As a champion of gender equality, reproductive health care, and voting and civil rights, she has long been a powerful force.  I had never read her decisions in her words and this short collection was a great way to truly see the impact she has had on so many different areas.

If you know me, you know one of my biggest role models is Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg so when I heard there was a book on her written decisions I had to jump on it.
What I like about Decisions and Dissents of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is that it highlights her political arguments made on the bench more so than her life in general. I teach many of these cases in my AP Government class so it was nice reading her word for word dissenting or concurring opinion and seeing the impact it could or did have.
RBG has had a profound impact on equality between the sexes in the United States and her leadership and example has continued this fight today. Through her career Ruth Bader Ginsburg highlighted the insidious ways in which women were victims of sex discrimination and fought for a heightened level of scrutiny to be applied to any laws that specifically treat sexes differently. She started this fight as a lawyer for the Women’s Rights Project at the ACLU and continues it today as a justice on the Supreme Court of the United States. This book is a great collection of her decisions and case briefs that show the evolution of her arguments and impact within the legal system of the United States.
Thank you to @penguinbooks and @netgalley for a free eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
