No Truth Without Ruth
Ruth Bader Ginsburg may be one of the most respected women in the United States, but her recognition is nothing short of hard-won. For years before becoming a justice of the Supreme Court, Ruth had to fight the notion that being female meant that she was less smart, less qualified, and less worthy of attention than her male counterparts. Throughout college, law school, and her work life, she faced discrimination—because she was a woman. In this inspiring picture book, readers will learn about Ruthless Ruthie—a warrior for equality, defender of justice, and a trailblazer for girls everywhere. Age Range: 4-8 years. Grade Level: Preschool-3. Written by Kathleen Krull. Illustrated by Nancy Zhang. Hardcover; 48 pages.
