Event description

Description

I could sit here and tell you about all the important cases Ruth Bader Ginsburg argued as a Associate Justice of the Supreme court.

Several of which are formidable and noteworthy cases, moving the needle forward on women's rights.

But "RBG" is at its heart--a love story.

A love story between Ruth and her husband Martin Ginsburg.

Ruth met Martin while attending college at Cornell. Both went on to law school at Harvard. (She was a new mother at the time.) And she was one of nine women admitted. Each woman was given a 'talking to' by the Dean of the school, reminding them that they were taking the place of a man. She made law review anyway.

When Martin got sick, she took care of him, taking notes for him and averaging a few hours of sleep each night. When he moved to New York to realize his career as a prominent tax attorney, she left Harvard and finished school at Columbia.

And after a long and storied career in law, where she continually faced rejection because of her gender, it was Martin who went, hat in hand, to visit former President Bill Clinton and asked him to interview Ruth for the position of Associate Justice to the Supreme Court.

Martin knew that Ruth was too shy to ask for herself.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg went on to become the second woman nominated to the Supreme Court--and the only woman in 2006 when Sandra Day O Connor stepped down.

On Thursday October 25th, be moved by Ruth and Martin Ginsburg's love story. Be moved by how powerful it is when someone SPONSORS a woman's career by making important introductions. Be moved by how dogged and persistent diminutive Ruth Bader Ginsburg is at 90 years old, in making her voice heard.

Join us at at the National Arts Club in Gramercy for RBG, examining the life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Afterwards, I will engage in a talkback with RBG filmmaker Julie Cohen.

This screening and talkback generously made possible by Rhonda Graber, Skylands Insurance Group, Rand Silver, AIG, Inderjit Sidhu, The Law Offices of Inderjit Sidhu, Kavita Mehra, LadyDrinks Board Member and Exec Dir. Sakhi for South Asian Women, Preeti Bajaj, Microsoft, Pooja Khuranna, DDS, Priya Sajja, and SABA NJ..
