RBG: Ruth Bader Ginsburg
At the youthful age of 84, the quiet and diminutive Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is rocking the legal world fighting for women and gender equality. The film explores how her early legal battles changed the world for women and how today’s youth have embraced her as a pop culture icon. This quiet warrior’s rise to the nation’s highest court is told through the voices of interviews from leaders of the movement to fight gender discrimination.
