The Notorious RBG, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, features in an all new documentary on CNN, “RBG.” This documentary goes to great lengths to provide intimate detail of the Supreme Court Justices’ successful career, while also expressing a witty, endearing and engaging personality. Politicians stereotypically work which in turn Ginsburg makes work the one priority in her everyday life.

Many advocates of changing the system are in full support of Ginsburg. As she was nominated by President Bill Clinton, a democratic president, has used her supremacy to fight for women’s rights, gender equality and also fighting for the rights of minorities.
Erin Chazer, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Alumni and Political Science major stated, “I saw the documentary in theaters when it first came out and I was awed. She has done so much in her life and overcome so much prejudice. But even more so she fundamentally changed the country we live in to make it a more equal place to help others overcome prejudice. If you are at all interested in seeing how women and minorities and any marginalized group moved forward in this world, I highly recommend the documentary about a woman who was in the center of it.”
Through being an icon she has become a political internet meme supporting the case of the Shelby County v Holder. Tumblr blogs have been made quoting her feminist phrases and expressing her importance to the country to something more relatable to high school and college students. Several skits on Saturday Night Live admire and praise Ginsburg for her “badass gangster-like” boldness. Ginsburg has expressed phrases such as, “When I'm sometimes asked when will there be enough [women on the Supreme Court] and I say, 'When there are nine,' people are shocked. But there'd been nine men, and nobody's ever raised a question about that.” She can be seen on t-shirts, hats and most importantly her upcoming film.
