What she reads if she loved On the Basis of Sex

on the basis of sex

Ruth Bader Ginsburg (a.k.a. The Notorious RBG) has become the hottest pop culture icon since Beyoncé. Today RBG is a household name thanks to amazing books, a fabulous documentary and now a well-received feature film, On the Basis of Sex, starring Felicity Jones and Armie Hammer. She is solidified in history as a trailblazer, feminist, female Supreme Court justice and equal-rights warrior… plus she is 85 and in fantastic shape! If you want to know more about this amazing woman, I have compiled a list of books to inspire the RBG in all of us.

The Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg by Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik

A compilation of why RBG is the pop culture icon we all love – and inspired by the Tumblr of the same name – this is a must-have for any RBG fan. Inside, there are photos and interviews with RBG’s inner circle and even an interview with the icon herself.


My Own Words by Ruth Bader Ginsburg

My Own Words is a collection of writings by RBG that tackles everything from gender equality to being Jewish, to the law and everything in between. This book is a solid literary compilation of her voice and her intellect.


Becoming by Michelle Obama

Becoming by Michelle Obama

The bestselling memoir by icon Michelle Obama, Becoming is an absolute must-read. Like RBG, Michelle is a voice for the voiceless and a woman who fights for what is right. This new memoir is more than her life story; it is a motivational elixir for the new year!
