On the Basis of Sex | Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Closing Argument “Nor Does the Word Freedom”

Share now:

In her closing argument, Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Felicity Jones) states the societal roles that have existed no longer apply and asks the court to keep up with the societal changes that have already taken place in the country. When a judge objects stating the constitution does not contain the word “woman”, she confidently replies with the most stunning response.

Film Synopsis:
Inspired by the powerful true story of a young Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Academy Award® nominee Felicity Jones), On the Basis of Sex depicts a then-struggling attorney and new mother facing adversity in her fight for equal rights. When Ruth takes on a ground-breaking case, she knows the outcome could alter the courts’ view of gender discrimination.
