Sitting Supreme Court judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg is now being immortalized in literature, children’s literature specifically. She is featured in her own picture book called, I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark which shows all the adversity she faced growing up in the ‘40s. Despite dealing with sexism and anti-Semitism, Ginsburg has been able to gain one of the most prestigious jobs imaginable. Together Debbie Levy, and Elizabeth Braddeley will tell her story to our young, impressionable, youth.
The Washington Post’s article about the book stated that, “Levy’s message is clear: Respectful disagreements and arguments are part of a healthy democracy.” Even though she may hotly disagree with the late Anotnin Scalia, they have been seen “enjoying each other’s company” on many occasions. Even though the book is for children, there are plenty of adults who could gain from such a message.
