Notorious RBG

This film is SOOOOO phenomenal. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a true American hero.

One of the best quotes of the movie is one RBG repeated from the infamous 19th century abolitionist and feminist Sarah Grimke who says,

“I ask no favor for my sex. All I ask of our brethren is that they take their feet off our necks…”

When I went to see the film, the theater was packed: People outwardly applauded, clapped, sighed with disdain, and laughed. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a movie with that captive of an audience. (I also couldn’t help buying an RBG mug for myself and two others after seeing the film.)

RBG directly changed many sexist laws in the United States and has served as a voice for human rights and reason during her time as Supreme Court Justice.
