During the last year of her life, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg sat down with Moment editor-in-chief Nadine Epstein to discuss the Jewish women she found inspiring. In Epstein’s book RBG’s Brave and Brilliant Women: 33 Jewish Women to Inspire Everyone, she profiles the women Ginsburg identified and reflects on each of their stories. The trailblazers in the book, like Ginsburg herself, fought to forge a better world rather than accepting it as it was. Epstein will be in conversation with best-selling author Amy B. Scher.
