No Truth Without Ruth: The Life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg
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.
But it was in her fight for equality as a lawyer that she made an imprint on American history, by changing the way the law dealt with women's rights and by showing people that unfairness to women wasn’t just a female problem—that it negatively affected men and children, too.
In this inspiring picture book from award-winning author Kathleen Krull and artist Nancy Zhang, readers will learn about Ruthless Ruthie—a warrior for equality, defender of justice, and a trailblazer for girls everywhere.
It is so important for all of our children to be exposed to positive forces for change, like Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who fought an upward battle to become a Supreme Court Judge during a time when women were expected to remain in the home. She was a trailblazer. And we can never forget the trailblazers who made much of the freedoms we enjoy today possible.
That is why books like No Truth Without Ruth are so necessary. Perfect for children as young as four, it is never too early to expose your child to the simple truths of women’s history.
No Truth Without Ruth is beautifully illustrated, and the age appropriate text allows young children to grasp Ruth’s experiences while still enjoying the tone of storytelling.
