Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died today at age 87. Ginsburg, a powerful figure in the fight for gender equality, died as a result of complications with cancer, according to the Supreme Court, which announced her death.
While Ginsburg was a well-known figure for years, thanks to her trailblazing career as the Supreme Court’s most prominent member, she gained a whole new generation of fans and admirers with the 2018 documentary, RBG, which followed her career path, professional achievements, and impact on women’s rights over the years.
Filmmakers Julie Cohen and Betsy West chronicled Ginsburg’s life in the film, which was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary in 2018. RBG shows the accomplished judge’s most noteworthy feats, from her landmark rulings to her impressive exercise routine — if you’ve seen the film before, you’ll fondly remember the scene with Ginsburg, outfitted in a purple Super Dive sweatshirt, working out with her trainer to start off her day.
If you haven’t seen RBG before, there’s no better time to watch it, and no better way to honor the legacy of a powerful woman and her immeasurable impact. Here’s how to watch RBG:
