Author's Website 

Linda Hirshman’s dual biography ties together the careers of the first and second women judges to serve on the Supreme Court.

The book reveals how these two trailblazers came from very different backgrounds, yet were strengthened by each other’s presence, and together, they transformed the Constitution and America, further advancing equality for all women.

Hirshman is an attorney, author, and respected cultural historian.
