U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has created a breathtaking legal legacy for women’s rights while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. Now 84, Ginsburg refuses to relinquish her judicial duty—frequently offering vigorous dissenting opinions—or her exercise workouts. 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 the inspiring and multidimensional documentary film, RBG.

This advance screening of the film, which features Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Jane Ginsburg, James Ginsburg, Clara Spera, Bill Clinton, and Open Society Foundations’ founding president Aryeh Neier, will be follwed by a panel discussion moderated by Baltimore city solicitor Andre M. Davis.
