The true story of a legendary case brought to court by lawyer Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Shattering a century of gender discrimination in the US, Ginsburg became a part of history. This is her story, starring Felicity Jones alongside Armie Hammer and Justin Theroux.
Today, Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a Supreme Court justice, one of the most powerful figures in the US legal system. Decades ago, in 1975, Ginsburg helped to change the shape of the law, making it more equal for men and women. Teaming up with her husband, Marty, Ginsburg lead the argument in favour of father’s rights, on behalf of a widower who has been denied his wife’s survivor benefits. The case served as a catalyst, turning already tense conversations about gender rights and igniting change that we still feel the impact of today.
On The Basis of Sex tells the story of this incredible woman who helped to create a fairer society, at a time when women in the courtroom were in themselves a rarity.
