I loved the documentary "RBG", so I was doubtful about liking this film. The movie is well done, but if you have to choose, see "RBG". I hope the film was faithful to the truth of the relationship between Chief Justice Ginsburg and her husband. He seemed to be a man ahead of his time in assuming the roles in the family traditionally held by women. As a woman of the 60's who is now in her 70's, I know first hand the attitudes of the time. There was only one statement in the film that aroused my feminist ire. I am confident that Martin Ginsburg was a good man, however, at the end of the film he is quoted as saying - "The smartest thing I ever did was to LET Ruth be Ruth." Ruth had the right to be herself without anyone's permission. You may accuse me of being overly sensitive, but let me tell you a story from life. A friend is a flight attendant with a major airline - a job that used to often be regarded as the equivalent of being a playboy club bunny. In an attempt to establish a union my friend was told by a co-worker - " I don't know if my husband would LET me vote for a union." No one LETS anyone else be themselves - we give each other wings ( no pun intended ). Kristi & Abby Tabby
