RBG

Documentary about the American Supreme Court judge Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Very interesting. At 85, she’s doing push-ups and holding planks and writing dissenting opinions on sexist and racist rulings. She does seem like a machine, getting about 2 hours sleep some nights, and not missing a day at work despite suffering from ass and pancreas cancer. She does seem like someone with extraordinary drive – in the 1950s she sat her second year at Harvard Law School, coming top quarter of her class, while simultaneously raising a 2-year-old and caring for her husband who was undergoing cancer radiation therapy, while also organising his mates to take notes for him during lectures, so she could type them up for him to read so he would also graduate alongside her. I mean fuck, that’s impressive.
