The powerful new big-screen drama, On the Basis of Sex, is inspired by the true story of a young Ruth Bader Ginsburg – then a struggling attorney and new mother – who faces adversity and numerous obstacles in her fight for equal rights throughout her career.
When Ruth takes on a groundbreaking tax case with her husband, attorney Martin Ginsburg, she knows it could change the direction of her career and the way the courts view gender discrimination. The film also chronicles the storybook-like romance between Ruth and Martin, a partnership that succeeded both personally and professionally.
On the Basis of Sex stars Felicity Jones as Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Armie Hammer as Martin Ginsburg. Rounding out the critically acclaimed cast are Justin Theroux, Sam Waterston, and Oscar winner Kathy Bates.
The film tells the gripping story of how Ruth’s struggles overturned a century of gender discrimination in the courts. It had its premiere at the end of last year in line with Justice Ginsburg’s 25th anniversary on the US Supreme Court.
