You are invited to an intimate conversation with Nina Totenberg as she talks about her nearly 50-year friendship with Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her book "Dinners With Ruth: A Memoir on the Power of Friendships."

Four years before Nina Totenberg was hired at NPR, where she cemented her legacy as a prizewinning reporter, and nearly 22 years before Ruth Bader Ginsburg was appointed to the Supreme Court, Nina called Ruth. A reporter for The National Observer, Nina was curious about Ruth’s legal brief, asking the Supreme Court to do something to declare law that discriminated “on the basis of sex” to be unconstitutional. In a time when women were fired for becoming pregnant, often could not apply for credit cards or get a mortgage in their own name, Ruth patiently explained her argument. That call launched a remarkable, nearly 50-year friendship. 

"Dinners With Ruth" is an extraordinary account of two women who paved the way for future generations by tearing down professional and legal barriers. It is also an intimate memoir of the power of friendships as women began to pry open career doors and transform the workplace.
