Virtual Tour of Ruth Bader Ginsburg Exhibit

February 9 @ 8:00 pm

Women’s Philanthropy and NextGen invite you to a virtual exhibit showcasing the inspiring life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Based on the New York Times bestselling book and Tumblr page of the same name, Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the first-ever museum exhibition focused solely on this judicial icon, whose image graces mugs, t-shirts, posters, and bobbleheads. The exhibit is a vibrant exploration of Justice Ginsburg’s life and her numerous, often simultaneous roles as a student, wife, mother, lawyer, judge, women’s rights pioneer, and Internet phenomenon. Whether you’re a fan or a legal scholar, don’t miss this blockbuster exhibit!

This exhibition was developed by Associate Curator at Los Angeles Skirball Cultural Center, Cate Thurston, in partnership with Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik, co-authors of the New York Times bestselling book, Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Briefs and other writings by RBG, including some of her famously searing dissents, are woven throughout the exhibit. In keeping with the spirit of Carmon and Knizhnik’s book, the exhibition riffs off the playful connection between Notorious RBG and rapper Notorious B.I.G. The name of each gallery section alludes to a song or lyric from the late hip-hop artist.

The virtual tour will be followed by a live Q&A with a docent.

This event is open to women who give a minimum gift of $365 or, for those under 40 years old, $180.

The introduction to the exhibit will be given by Julie Seaman, Associate Professor of Law, Emory University. Julie teaches courses and seminars in evidence, constitutional law, and freedom of speech. Her research interests include neuroscience and law, scientific evidence, hate speech, and sex discrimination. In particular, she focuses on the implications of findings in cognitive psychology, biology, and neuroscience to various legal theories and doctrines. Seaman received her BA from the University of Pennsylvania (summa cum laude) and her JD from Harvard (magna cum laude), where she was an editor of the Harvard Law Review. She currently serves on the board of the Georgia Innocence Project.
