6/17 Ruth Bader Ginsburg didn’t just break the glass ceiling of a male dominated legal system; she shattered it. Controversial to some and a hero too many others, she fearlessly and tirelessly pursued justice for all, while focusing her considerable energies towards progressive reform on the courts and her vision of America at large. This program takes a warm and intimate look into the life of Justice Ginsburg from her humble roots in Brooklyn to the highest echelon of our nations courts, Ruth Bader Ginsburg made an indelible mark on our country and inspired a generation of young women to make their own.
