Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is an icon for many. She is the second woman to be appointed to the Supreme Court of the United States.

 

At the Sundance Film festival, Ginsberg spoke out about her support of the #MeToo movement and why it is so important to address sexual harassment.

 

She spoke about her experiences being sexually harassed in college, being interrupted by her male colleagues, and being paid less due to her gender.

 

Growing up in a generation where no one even knew what harassment was, she relates to what is it like not being able to speak up because of boys will be boys attitudes and the culture being to just brush things off or accept things as compliments.

 

She fought for many civil rights cases in the Supreme Court before she even became a justice. Her life and career dedicated to furthering rights for women and minorities is iconic.

 

Betsy West & Julie Cohen created the documentary RBG as a tribute to her, showing how Ginsberg has played an important role in shaping America.

 

Her documentary features her work in law, harassment she has faced, growing up in Brooklyn, life with her late husband Martin, time she spends with her granddaughter, and so much more.

 

The 37-minute documentary was premiered at Sundance Film Festival on the 21st and Magnolia Pictures has acquired the worldwide rights to it.
