“Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a feminist icon, a legal titan, and an inspiration to so many, including me. Justice, Justice Thou Shalt Pursue is a gift to readers and a stirring call to continue the fights she waged.”—Hillary Rodham Clinton, former United States Secretary of State

In a decades-long career, Ruth Bader Ginsburg was an advocate and jurist for gender equality and for ensuring that the United States Constitution leaves no person behind. Her work transformed not just the American legal landscape, but American society more generally. Ginsburg labored tirelessly to promote a Constitution that is ever more inclusive and that allows every individual to achieve their full human potential. As revealed in Justice, Justice Thou Shalt Pursue, in the area of gender rights, Ginsburg dismantled long-entrenched systems of discrimination based on outdated stereotypes by showing how such laws hold back both genders. And as also shown in the materials brought together here, Justice Ginsburg had a special ability to appreciate how the decisions of the high court impact the lived experiences of everyday Americans.

Co-authored by Berkeley Law professor and former Ginsburg law clerk Amanda L. Tyler, Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s last book is a curation of her own legacy, tracing the long history of her work for gender equality and a “more perfect Union.”
