Ruth Bader Ginsburg has spent a lifetime fighting for gender equality, but in a recent interview the 84-year-old supreme court justice made clear she sees the fight as unfinished business.
When asked at the Sundance Film Festival for her thoughts on the nascent #MeToo movement, she was unequivocal with her praise: “It’s about time,” Ginsburg told her interviewer. “For so long women were silent, thinking there was nothing you could do about it, but now the law is on the side of women, or men, who encounter harassment and that’s a good thing.”
“Every woman of my vintage knows what sexual harassment is, although we didn’t have a name for it,” she said in a wide-ranging interview ahead of the Sundance premiere of RBG, a documentary film about her life.
Ginsburg has held her post in the highest court in the land for decades, and it’s no secret that at 84 years old she’s still in great shape. The trailer for the Ruth Bader Ginsburg documentary RBG, which hits select theaters on May 4, has arrived — and all are now hailing the cutting words, longstanding wisdom and aspirational exercise routine of the beloved Supreme Court justice.
