When Ruth Bader Ginsburg was appointed U.S. Supreme Court Justice, she made some changes in the traditional black robes, pairing them with lace collars in place of a man’s tie. This symbolic move was fitting for a judge who fought for women’s and minorities’ rights all her life. Bader Ginsburg, the second woman to hold the prestigious position, is one of American society’s most influential figures. Throughout her career, the petite woman never hesitated to make controversial decisions and start angry debates. Today, at 85, the Notorious RBG is a social lighthouse, the subject of rap songs and tattoos. After 25 years on the Bench, she has no intention of retiring. She is a justice warrior, an Instagram star and even an opera performer—and she is enjoying every moment.
Directors: Julie Cohen, Betsy West
