On the Basis of Sex: Felicity Jones Channels Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Don Kaye Jan 10, 2019

On the Basis of Sex star Felicity Jones tells us how she approached playing the role of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg may be the most well-known and recognized Supreme Court Justice of the modern era, and the new film On the Basis of Sex chronicles her career and details the landmark case that she and her husband Martin took on, which changed the course of their lives and the courts’ view of gender discrimination for decades since.

In an era when women were expected to stay home and fulfill the typical gender roles of housewife and mother, Ruth fought against a legal establishment that was firmly in the grip of men to teach, practice law and eventually ascend all the way to the Supreme Court, on which she was seated in 1993 and still serves today.
