Learn how Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the second woman appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court, has become an unlikely pop-cultural phenomenon, in the documentary, “RBG - Hero. Icon. Dissenter.” Women for Kansas Barton County Chapter will show the film to the public at 2:30 p.m., Feb. 17, at the Kansas Wetlands Education Center, complete with popcorn and beverages. A short meeting will begin at 2 p.m.
“‘RBG,’ a loving and informative documentary portrait of Justice Ginsburg during her 85th year on earth and her 25th on the bench, is both evidence of this status and a partial explanation of how it came about,” according to A. O. Scott of The New York Times.
“This riveting, surprisingly touching documentary reveals how the quiet, intense Ginsburg became one the most iconic Supreme Court justices in American history,” said Sandie Angulo Chen, Common Sense Media.
