Pauli Murray and Ruth Bader Ginsburg: Blazing the Trail to Legal Equality

As lawyers, Pauli Murray and Ruth Bader Ginsburg both broke new ground by successfully arguing landmark gender equality cases. The openly gay Murray reinvented herself several times, while Ginsburg married young and doggedly trod the path that would lead her to the Supreme Court and 21st century fame as “the notorious RBG.” Discover how these two contrasting personalities forged new and enduring directions for all American women.
