Inspired by the true story of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, On the Basis of Sex tells a stirring story that follows a young lawyer and new mother, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, as she brings a groundbreaking gender discrimination case before the U.S. Supreme Court, and sets the stage for a lifetime of fighting for women’s equality and equal rights for all, along with her husband Marty.
