Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a United States Supreme Court Justice and has been for the past 25 years.
She graduated top of her class at Harvard Law School (even if they didn't quite let her finish).
She attended classes for herself and her husband while he was ill.
And she couldn't get a job even with all of those qualifications.
The movie covers everything that was happening during Ginsburg's rise to the Supreme Court. She is a mother, a wife and a hell of a lawyer. Currently, Ginsburg has just beaten cancer (for the second time).
I don't care if you agree with her opinions or dissents, I still believe that you should watch this movie. It covers the history of our country, which is something that is very much overlooked very easily as of recently. There is a reason Ruth Bader Ginsburg is sitting on the highest bench of the nation, and a reason why she only just missed her first arguments in 25 years. Her husband dying, battling cancer and other illnesses never stopped her from showing up to the arguments.
The cases that are shown in "On The Basis Of Sex" show how women get to have the rights that they have today because there once was a man being discriminated against. It shows the complexity and beauty of the law system and how the law goes about change and what it actually means to talk in front of appellate justices to get them to understand the change.
Law has always been an important cornerstone for our community, and this movie shows some of the most recent histories of the law that affects our everyday living.
"Women belong in all places where decisions are being made. It shouldn't be that women are the exception." — Ruth Bader Ginsburg
