Ruth Bader Ginsberg is the longest-serving woman justice on the US Supreme Court, and only the second woman ever appoint to the Court. But she had quite a distinguished career even before that. She was already a wife and mother when she graduated, tied for first in her class, from Columbia Law School in 1959, and spent the next several decades having to prove she was as good as any male lawyer. Ginsberg worked for the ACLU and took on gender discrimination cases all over the country. She was appointed to the US Court of Appeals in 1976, and to the Supreme Court in 1993.
Ruth Bader Ginsberg is a real-life superhero. And now the notorious RBG has her own superhero movie, titled simply RBG, a documentary set for limited release on May 4. May the fourth be with her. -via Uproxx
