Publisher's Summary

My Own Words is a collection of Ruth Bader Ginsburg's public writing and speeches. It includes biographical information and a discussion of her intellectual interests and positions.

Ginsburg was born in 1933 in Brooklyn to a Russian Jewish immigrant family. She excelled in academics and showed an early interest in human rights as evidenced by an eighth-grade paper praising the Charter of the United Nations. In 1950, she entered Cornell University where she met Martin Ginsburg during her freshman year. They married in 1954, and he enthusiastically supported her career in law until his death in 2010.

Ginsburg gave birth to a daughter in 1955 and entered Harvard Law School in 1956. She was one of only nine women in a class of approximately 500. Women with children were not encouraged to pursue law at the time.

Please note: this is a summary, analysis and review of the book and not the original book.
