On the Basis of Sex

I watched On The Basis of Sex. I had taped it when it was on Showtime. It has
Felicity Jones, Armie Hammer, Sam Waterston, Kathy Bates, Cailee Spaeny, and Chris Mulkey.

In this movie, Ruth Bader Ginsburg goes to law school after her husband goes to law school. When her husband was sick, she took up his schoolwork and hers. After he graduated, he got a job out of state so she wanted to graduate early to be able to go to school in that state. She was turned down for early graduation, but she did graduate and went to that other college and graduated there. She wanted to work as a lawyer in a law firm, but no one would hire her because she was a woman. She ended up taking a professor job and took up a case of sex discrimination against a man in a tax law case. She ended up winning the case.

I liked this movie. She was a great lawyer. Next week I’m watching The Bad Seed Returns.
