“All I ask of our brethren is that they take their feet off our necks.” The Notorious RBG, AKA Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, is a radical ground-breaker. Nominated as 107th justice to the United States Supreme Court, the quietly formidable 84 year-old with a rockstar following works out and works hard. Ginsburg held her nerve in a time when being a woman “was an impediment”; employers could fire a woman for being pregnant and banks made women have their husbands co-sign to withdraw money. Through home movies, archive footage and interviews, this is an intimate portrait of a woman who has tirelessly and patiently fought to bring women into formerly exclusively male spaces, with a devoted husband as her most valued ally.
