Talk: Notorious RBG

Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik visited Google's office in Cambridge, MA to discuss their book "Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg". Ruth Bader Ginsburg would be famous for her stern but measured dissents on some of the Supreme Court’s most controversial cases, but thanks to the vision of a social-media-savvy law student, she has become a cultural icon. The Notorious RBG tumblr quickly became a sensation after its launch in 2013, and Justice Ginsburg’s image and words are now seemingly everywhere. Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg tells the life story of this remarkable woman.
