About the event
On the Basis of Sex summary: A 2018 American biographical legal drama based on the life and early cases of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The movie is about when she was a struggling attorney and obstacles in her fight for equal rights. When she takes on a groundbreaking tax case with her husband, attorney Martin Ginsburg, she knows it could change the direction of her career and the way the courts view gender discrimination. Directed by Mimi Leder and written by Daniel Stiepleman, it stars Felicity Jones as Ginsburg, with Armie Hammer, Justin Theroux, Jack Reynor, Cailee Spaeny, Sam Waterston, and Kathy Bates in supporting roles.
