> The next meeting of the Marsha Razin Book and Film Club will be on Monday,
> January 7 at 7:15PM, at the Benjamin Library in The Meyerhoff Matnas.

> Due to some necessary scheduling changes we will view and discuss the
> movie "RBG,"  originally scheduled for March 4.  This movie is even more
> timely now than when we originally selected it!  Please see the brief
> description below, for more information.
> The new March selection will be announced at the January meeting.  We hope
> to see you there.
> "*RBG*" is an intimate portrait of an unlikely rock star: United States
> Supreme Court Justice *Ruth Bader Ginsburg*. With unprecedented access,
> the filmmakers explore how her early legal battles changed the world for
> women.
> Currently, over the age of 80, Justice Ginsburg has developed a
> breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon.
> But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of
> this diminutive, quiet warrior’s rise to the nation’s highest court has
> been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans – until now. *RBG* is
> a revelatory documentary exploring Ginsburg ‘s exceptional life and career.
> The film, which was directed, written, edited, shot, and produced by
> women, follows Ginsburg’s journey from her girlhood in Brooklyn to her
> appointment to the highest court in the land. Along the way, it details how
> she graduated as one of only nine women in her law class, overcame years of
> gender discrimination, and argued milestone rights cases before the Supreme
> Court. Through interviews with Ginsburg, her adult children, colleagues,
> friends, and even clients, the filmmakers also explore how Ginsburg has
> become a cultural icon (aka “the Notorious RBG”).
