Diversity, Equity and Inclusion LA Film Discussion Series:

 

RBG - Monday, November 30th 2020  @ 4:00 p.m. PT

Directed and Produced by Betsy West and Julie Cohen

Cinematography by NYFA Documentary Professor Claudia Raschke

 

Please join the NYFA LA Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council for the next event in our ongoing screening and discussion series. We will be examining the life of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg and her work on gender equality, by viewing the Academy Award Nominated Documentary RBG, followed by a discussion and dialogue facilitated by NYFA faculty.  

 

1.    Watch RBG prior to Monday, November 30th, 4:00 p.m. PT.

 

RBG chronicles the career of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, which spans several decades, and how she developed a legal legacy while becoming a pop culture icon.

 

Ruth Bader Ginsburg successfully argued five of six cases regarding gender discrimination before the U.S. Supreme Court. She advocated for both men and women facing gender-based bias: among the plaintiffs she represented was Sharron Frontiero, a woman facing housing discrimination in the U.S. Air Force, and a male single parent denied Social Security benefits normally paid only to single mothers. Ginsburg argued these cases in the 1970s, when gender discrimination was rampant in U.S. society and an all-male Supreme Court was generally skeptical of claims of bias against women.

 

You can watch the film using following platform links below:

 

2.    Join the discussion on RBG and gender equality Monday, November 30th, 2020 at 4:00 p.m. PT.  We will be referencing RBG, therefore it is recommended to watch before the event, but it is certainly not required to participate in the dialogue.
