I ask no favor for my sex. All I ask of our brethren is that they take their feet off our necks.
This week I attended a screening of the RBG movie documentary at my local theater. I had been wanting to see it, so am happy I had the opportunity to do so.
I am familiar with Justice Ginsburg’s current work on the Supreme Court, but didn’t know much about her history. Now I do, and I have more understanding and even more respect for this trailblazing icon.
It’s easy to view things based on what is happening now, but it’s important to remember our history. We have come a long way as a society, but it wasn’t that long ago that things were very different.
The improvements that have been made in regards to civil rights and equal rights are wonderful, but there is still more work to do.
I enjoyed watching the documentary with a friend, and it inspired thought provoking conversations afterwards.
In addition to the movie, I’d recommend the following books:
- Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg
- I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark (children’s book)
- The RBG Workout
