On The Basis of Sex is a movie about Ruth Bader Ginsberg's early life and career establishing her expertise in advocating for women's rights in the U.S. in the later half of the twentieth century.
It is a five out of five on the UU A Way Of Life ministries movie scale and is highly recommended.
This is not only a biographical story about RBG but a good example of how social change is made in an intentional and deliberate way.
The norms, attitudes, beliefs, practices of a society are highly influenced in a democracy by the "rule of law." The impact of the changes in women's rights in a patriarchal society made by Ruth Bader Ginsberg's and others efforts are enormous. What is taken for granted today and "just the way things are" has not always been the case, and the recipients in todays society of the changes made by those who came before us deserve recognition, acknowledgement, and support.
This movie is informative on multiple levels and inspirational. It filled me with gratitude for the work that has been done to improve the lives of people in our society by what are called in Unitarian Universalism, "Words and deeds of prophetic women and men which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love."
