“Women belong in all places where decisions are being made. It shouldn’t be that women are the exception.”
These moving words were spoken by the former associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States: Ruth Bader Ginsburg. With her passing by late 2020, she had built up an impressive legacy of being the leading voice in gender equality, women’s interests and civil rights- and liberties. In times when the American democracy is squeaking and creaking, it is important to look back at the history and especially at such figures!
The movie ‘On the Basis of Sex’ (2018) by director Mimi Leder is a lively portrayal of the strength and power Ginsburg had in a truly man’s world when she started her career back in the nineties. Before the movie starts, there will be a short lecture.
