Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Gloria Steinem, Nina Totenberg

An inspiring portrait of Supreme Court Justice and Cornell alum Ruth Bader Ginsberg ’54. “Ginsburg’s life—and its many lessons, both learned and taught—come to entertaining and energetic life” (Indiewire) in this new documentary that bowed at the Sundance Film Festival in January. “RBG serves as a compelling Ginsburg primer, and West and Cohen are understandably interested in driving home just how fully she fought back sexism at every stage of her professional life, from her experience at Harvard Law to her first steps into full-time work to her Supreme Court appointment.” (Indiewire)

The film will be introduced by Professor Gretchen Ritter (Government), who will also lead a post-screening discussion. Ritter is a professor of government and the former dean of the College of Arts & Sciences. She studies the history of women's Constitutional rights as well as studies on contemporary issues concerning democracy and citizenship in American politics. In September 2014, Dean Ritter and Justice Ginsburg, both Cornell graduates, held a conversation at the New York Historical Society.
