RBG: Documentary Screening

The Department of Political Science, the Pre-Law Advisory Committee, and the Pre-Law Society are co-hosting a screening of RBG, the 2018 documentary film about the life and work of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The Academy Award nominated documentary film chronicles Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s remarkable career that led to her current celebrity status as the “Notorious RBG.” The film not only explores Ginsburg’s role on the Court, but it also delves into her early career where she overcame numerous obstacles as a pioneering woman in the legal profession. The movie also reveals Ginsburg’s work as a gender equality advocate and her pathway to becoming the second woman appointed to the Supreme Court. There will be a modest reception, with food, after the film.
