Notorious RBG: New Documentary Following the Life and Success of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg


“I ask no favor for my sex. All I ask of our brethren, is that they take their feet off of our necks.”- Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg


This first line of the trailer for the new documentary detailing the life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg puts into few words the grand legacy that the supreme court justice has left on the nation and the feminist movement. At 85 years old, Ruth Bader Ginsburg continues to fight for the rights of women and stand as a voice of reason on the Supreme Court.

As detailed in the documentary, Ruth Bader Ginsburg was born in Brooklyn to Russian Jewish immigrants. Despite graduating from Columbia Law school as one of the top members of her class, RBG was denied many professional opportunities because of her identity as a woman.

The film is told through the perspective of close family, friends and coworkers, who weave a story about Ginsburg’s fight for women’s rights and equality throughout her career. Even today, the Supreme court justice strives to protect the rights of women and remind her male counterparts that the future is indeed female.

The film opens in theaters nationwide on May 4th. And remember, you can’t spell truth without Ruth.
