Watch RBG in celebration of Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Available Sept. 25  Virtual screening room  $5
Ginsburg was fiercely determined from an early age, and, in the late ’50s, was one of only nine women in a class of several hundred at Harvard Law School. When she graduated, no New York City law firm would hire her, because she was a woman—something they admitted openly. But Ginsburg's husband recognized her potential early on; the film is as much a romance about the two of them, and how they repeatedly fought for one another, as it is about the changing legal landscape. 

There are numerous films available to screen with the International Film Series. See what's playing.
