> 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.
 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”).
