Shana Knizhnik is the co-author of Notorious RBG. Currently a judicial law clerk on Third Circuit Court of Appeals, Knizhnik created the uber popular Notorious RBG Tumblr in 2013 following RBG’s dissent after part of the Voting Right’s Act was struck down.

At NYU, she was an Articles Editor for the New York University Law Review and served on the boards of OUTLaw and the Coalition on Law and Representation (CoLR). She has interned at the ACLU Criminal Law Reform Project, the Public Defender Service for D.C. and the Legal Aid Society’s Juvenile Rights Practice in the Bronx. She holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from Columbia University.While a student at NYU, she created the Notorious RBG Tumblr, a feminist website dedicated to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and in 2015 co-wrote the book Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg with journalist Irin Carmon.Shana is a karaoke aficionado and was a member of both NYU’s Law Revue musical productions and Substantial Performance, NYU Law School’s best (and only) a cappella group.Contact a speaker booking agent to check availability on Shana Knizhnik and other top speakers and celebrities.
