How Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sandra Day O’Connor changed the world, with historian Linda Hirshman

My longtime friend Linda Hirshman, who wrote a book about how Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sandra Day O’Connor changed the world with their historic appointments to the Supreme Court (and how RBG started shaking things up decades before that), talks to us about both amazing women, with a particular focus on RBG. (Linda’s book is called: “Sisters in Law: How Sandra Day O’Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg Went to the Supreme Court and Changed the World”).

In the second half of our interview, to be posted tomorrow, Linda talks about her new book, coming out tomorrow, “Reckoning: The Epic Battle Against Sexual Abuse and Harassment.” That book is about the MeToo movement, again from a social historian’s perspective, starting with Chappaquiddick and taking us to today.

Below is a 10-minute clip of the 36 minute interview dealing with RBG. To hear the entire show, and help keep us ad free, become a patron over at Patreon.

And if you’re in NYC or DC, Linda will speaking about her book at the Strand in NYC (Broadway and 12th) on Tuesday, June 11 at 730pm, and at Politics & Prose in DC (up Connecticut Avenue) this coming Friday, June 14, at 7pm.
