On May 3rd, Open Society Institute hosts a special advance screening of “RBG,” the highly anticipated documentary about U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. This is the first event in a series celebrating OSI-Baltimore’s 20th Anniversary. Before the film, Justice Ginsburg will offer a video greeting congratulating OSI on our 20th Anniversary. Other events will be announced soon.
Justice Ginsburg has created a breathtaking legal legacy for women’s rights while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. The personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior’s rise to the nation’s highest court during a hostile time for women, is revealed in this inspiring and multidimensional portrait. Now 84, Ginsburg refuses to relinquish her judicial duty, frequently offering vigorous dissenting opinions, or her exercise workouts.
The film features Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Jane Ginsburg, James Ginsburg, Clara Spera, Bill Clinton, and Open Society Foundations’ founding president Aryeh Neier, who, as director of the ACLU in 1972, hired Ginsburg as founding co-director of its Women’s Rights Project.
We invite you to participate in a discussion with panelists after the screening.
