PREVIEW: On the Basis of Sex

25 years after Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s appointment to the nation’s highest Court, the biopic On the Basis of Sex tells the story of the first gender discrimination case that she argued as a lawyer, and what ultimately became the first step in her rise to become one of the nation’s leading advocates for women’s rights.

Directed by Mimi Leder, the film features Felicity Jones as Ruth Bader Ginsburg. On the Basis of Sex is currently showing at the Michigan Theater, and tickets are $7.50. If you are interested in learning more about the life of an American icon, don’t miss it!
