Read the Notorious RBG at Her Most Blistering

(Hey y'all-- I'm going to be taking a short break from DU, but HAD to do a flyby and post this article about Ruth Ginsburg's dissenting opinions linked in the article -- take some gtime to savor them-- she really is a badass)


Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, teeny tiny goddess of judicial feminism incarnate, has authored many a badass piece of legal writing in her day. Now, thanks to some devoted brainiacs who are better at this sort of thing than I am, you can read the sharpest work of the grand dame in one place.

The folks at People for the American Way (a progressive think tank) have put together a lovely treasury of RBG's greatest hits. Perfect light reading for the next time you put your head in a big pile of curls on your head and take a bubble bath, or lie out on a Caribbean beach, or a good thing to read to the kids when you're trying to get them to bed. Yep. Just a little light legal reading.

Not only are Ginsburg's writings worth reading simply because they're a good workout for your brain, it's incredibly heartening to know that such an incredible legal mind has chosen to devote her career to continually standing up for women and other non-corporate Americans.

Never die, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
