The feminist battles that shaped the Notorious RBG

May 3, 2018


On this edition of Your Call, we speak with the filmmakers of RBG, a documentary that traces the steps on Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s path from ambitious young woman to feminist icon.


She may be tiny in stature, but Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been an enormous influence on the women’s rights movement. Who was Ginsburg before she became the Notorious RBG?

RGB opens Friday, May 4 in select theaters. 


Betsy West, award-winning filmmaker, journalist, and co-director / co-producer of the documentary RBG

Julie Cohen, co-director / co-producer of RGB, founder of Better Than Fiction, and adjunct professor at Columbia University
