Director Mimi Leder (Shameless) with her first big screen project brings the story of lawyer/professor of sexual equality Ruth Bader Ginsburg to the big screen in the new biopic “On the Basis of Sex”. Felicity Jones takes on the lead role with Armie Hammer as her husband Martin.
Ruth Ginsburg is one of nine ladies invited to attend Harvard Law School with a class of 500 men that includes her husband Martin. According to Dean Griswold this is something new Harvard is trying, and then asked the girls to introduce themselves and explain why they are there “taking the place of a man?” Ginsburg took exception to this and proceeded to become the best student in her class even though she was continually passed over for opportunities to participate in class. Ginsburg was married with a baby girl and had to manage the family with her studies.
