Documentaries You Should See: RBG

RBG is a love letter to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader-Ginsberg.

RBG is an portrayed as an elderly woman, whose age and seeming frailty belie tremendous wisdom, personal strength, and an unbelievable work ethic.

It shows how RBG used her legal abilities to gain equal rights for women under the law, even using cases in which men faced sex discrimination to further the cause.

It is witty, enlightening, and very touching.

The movie is also a love letter to her late husband, who was clearly an amazing man, successful in his own right, but also clearly so proud of his wife’s accomplishments.

The movie also shows how the Supreme Court has changed and moved considerably to the right since RBG was appointed to the bench.

Also, this film is largely the creation of women.  Gotta love that. 🙂

Oh, and I have to end with the Sarah Grimke quote.

ask no favors for my sex.  All I ask of our brethren is, that they will take their feet from off our necks.
