RBG, Boss Bitch

NPR’s story on a new book about Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sandra Day O’Connor has confirmed my suspicion that I’ve got to read it ASAP. I mean:

“Decades later, though, when she was nominated to the Supreme Court, one of her law school classmates regaled his Rotary Club pals, telling them she was known in law school by a particularly unattractive nickname. “When Ginsburg heard that this man had reported that her nickname at Harvard was ‘bitch,’ ” says Hirshman, “Ginsburg looked up and said, ‘better bitch than mouse.'”
