#InVinoFab Podcast No. 9: RBG

If you have never heard of Ruth Bader Ginsburg (a.k.a. Notorious RBG), I am not sure what rock you have been living under these days. This vignette of #InVinoFab will give you a quick rundown of relevant resources and links to learn more about Justice Ginsburg’s life and contributions she has made for society. Let’s just say you: “Can’t Spell Truth Without Ruth.”

RBG’s describes her understanding of feminism to be that we all must be “free to be you and me”(Carmon & Knizhnik, 2015, p. 91). Also, I can say that Ruth is one lady that does not give up and DOES THE WORK! After watching the RBG documentary and reading the Notorious RBG book, I am reminded that it takes time, patience, dedication, and strategy to move the needle for feminist issues. As Justice Bader Ginsburg says: “…one doesn’t learn that lesson in a day. Generally, change in our society is incremental, I think.L Real change enduring change, happens one step at a time” (Carmon & Knizhnik, 2015, pp. 60).

Here are few RBG things and other items we chatted about in this short pod episode:

Description from the RBG film trailer:

At the age of 84, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior’s rise to the nation’s highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans – until now. RBG is a revelatory documentary exploring Ginsburg ‘s exceptional life and career from Betsy West and Julie Cohen, and co-produced by Storyville Films and CNN Films.”
