        Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Continuing Fight for Equality | PBS NewsHour

        “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. Ginsburg says at one point she felt like a kindergarten teacher when it came to instructing other judges about the meaning of sexual discrimination. She would ask them to reflect on how they’d like their daughters and granddaughters treated.

        As you listen to Ginsberg describe her relationship with her late husband, discuss the following: Who is someone in your life who you believe will always remain in your heart and mind even though they may have passed away? How did they help you become the person you are today? See the support materials below to continue in-classroom discussion.
