Long before she became ​“Noto­ri­ous,” Ruth Bad­er Gins­burg was an attor­ney argu­ing gen­der equal­i­ty cas­es before the U.S. Supreme Court. The cas­es she won in the 1970s changed the mean­ing of the Con­sti­tu­tion, adding legal equal­i­ty for women to it. That is the rea­son RBG became the first Jew­ish Amer­i­can and the first woman to lie in state in the U.S. Capitol. 

Philip­pa Strum’s book presents the human sto­ries behind the cases. We are excited to welcome her virtually to Commonpoint Queens in partnership with the Jewish Book Council. Click here to buy the book.

This event is part of our Cultural Arts Speaker Series. Click here to register. The event will be held virtually and is open to the community.
