The Legacy of “The Notorious RGB”

May 4, 2022
7:00 pm


St. Johnsbury Athenaeum
Portrait of Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg was a feminist superhero who could still do a plank at 87 and who survived pancreatic cancer long beyond expectations. Dartmouth history professor Annelise Orleck examines the life of the brilliant jurist who remained fiercely progressive, unapologetically liberal, and committed to equality to the end, and who loved her status as a pop culture idol.
