Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died on Friday, Sept. 18, was that rare phenomenon, a Supreme Court justice with rock-star celebrity status. Her life and legal career are the subject of several excellent biographies (including children’s) as well as movies. The 2018 film On the Basis of Sex, starring Felicity Jones as Ginsburg, dramatizes her involvement as a lawyer in a 1970 federal case that was the first of many she litigated to strike down gender-based laws. RBG is an award-winning documentary, also released in 2018.
