RBG is a remarkable documentary of the career of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, which spans several decades, and how she developed a legal legacy while becoming a pop culture icon. In the 1970s Ginsburg played a leading role as a legal warrior for women’s rights. “I ask for no favour for my sex,” she said, quoting the abolitionist Sarah Grimké from 1837. “All I ask of our brethren is that they take their feet off our necks.” An astonishing woman who at 85, having already survived bouts of cancer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the proverbial survivor.
