With all the controversy surrounding the Supreme Court and the upcoming election and the landmark opinion written by Justice Stephen Breyer last week that struck down a Texas law that would have closed all but nine abortion clinics in the state–supported by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg–it seemed like the perfect time to re-air our conversation with MSNBC journalist, Irin Carmon, about her book Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg (co-written by Shana Knizhnik).
It was an honor to talk to Irin, who has devoted her career to illuminating women’s rights, and who now pays homage to one women who’s paved the way for us all. If you don’t know much about the life and work of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, this is one not to miss!
Irin Carmon is an MSNBC national reporter. Co-author of the NOTORIOUS RBG. Visiting Fellow at Yale Law School’s Program for the Study of Reproductive Justice.
