The story of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, her struggles for equal rights and what she had to overcome in order to become a U.S. Supreme Court Justice.
An inspiring and spirited true story that follows young lawyer Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Felicity Jones) as she teams with her husband Marty (Armie Hammer) to bring a ground-breaking case before the U.S. Court of Appeals and overturn a century of gender discrimination. Ginsburg first has to overcome gender bias throughout Harvard law school, settle for a career as a law professor because no firm would hire her, before eventually making a name for herself by championing the need for gender equality in United States’ Laws. The film premiered in 2018 in line with Justice Ginsburg's 25th anniversary on the Supreme Court.
