Ruth Bader Ginsburg quickly became one of our badass heroines last year so we are excited to see that she has made her way to the big screen in the new film On the Basis of Sex.
Directed by Mimi Leder (‘Pay It Forward’, ‘The Peacemaker’, ‘Deep Impact’)
Starring Felicity Jones, Armie Hammer, Justin Theroux, Jack Reynor, Kathy Bates, Sam Waterston, Stephen Root, Cailee Spaeny

On the Basis of Sex is inspired by the true story of a young Ruth Bader Ginsburg – then a struggling attorney and new mother – who faces adversity and numerous obstacles in her fight for equal rights throughout her career.
When Ruth takes on a ground-breaking tax case with her husband, attorney Martin Ginsburg, she knows it could change the direction of her career and the way the courts view gender discrimination. The film also chronicles the storybook-like romance between Ruth and Marty, a partnership that succeeded both personally and professionally.
