Linda Hirshman's Sisters in Law: How Sandra Day O'Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg Went to the Supreme Court and Changed the World looks at the first and second women appointed to the nation's highest court.

Although they are different in many ways, the two women forged a remarkable and supportive friendship during their time together on the court. This book shares the fascinating story of how they worked together and tackled such modern feminist issues as women in the military, abortion, sexual harassment and affirmative action.

This joint biography brings these exceptional women to life and presents them in a manner that is both informative and highly entertaining. The reader will come away understanding how these two justices, their lives and their legal philosophies not only complemented but also contrasted and how together they made a profound difference in the lives of many American women.
