“I ask no favor for my sex. All I ask of our brethren is that they take their feet off our necks,” states Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in a new documentary about her life. The documentary 'RBG' follows 85-year old Ginsburg’s roots, education, family life, and career, along with her continuing fight for sexual, socio-economic, and racial equality.
