Dear MoveOn member,
In the widely acclaimed feature documentary "RBG," Ruth Bader Ginsburg says, "I ask no favor for my sex. All I ask of our brethren is that they take their feet off our necks."
Justice Ginsburg is a fighter, an inspiration, and an icon—and this documentary telling the story of how she became a lawyer "when women were not wanted by the legal profession," explores her life and career fighting for women's rights. It even includes a scene with her, at age 83, doing pushups and planks with her personal trainer so she can stay in fighting shape for years to come.
"RBG" is a must-have film, and it's being released on August 28. But you can pre-order a limited-edition copy on DVD or Blu-ray now from MoveOn!
Instead of giving your money to a big corporation, you'll support MoveOn—and help us block Brett Kavanaugh from a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court.
When Ginsburg went to law school, it was legal to discriminate on the basis of sex. The dean of Harvard Law School at the time even asked Ginsburg how she could justify taking a man's spot in her law school class. When she graduated at the top of her class at law school, she couldn't get a job at a law firm, because she was a woman, a mother, and Jewish.
But Ginsburg persisted and began her trailblazing work for women's rights. In the documentary, Ginsburg recalls, "I did see my job as a kind of kindergarten teacher in those days, because the judges didn't think sex discrimination existed."
Ginsburg went on to win five groundbreaking rulings that made incredible progress for women. And this month, she marked her 25th anniversary fighting for justice on the Supreme Court.
When you get "RBG" from MoveOn, we'll put your money to work stopping Kavanaugh's lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court and standing up for the progressive values we believe in.
This octogenarian rock star will inspire you as you watch her craft blistering dissents late into the night and do pushups and squats.
Thanks for all you do.

Want to support MoveOn's work without getting a DVD? We are working every day to stop the confirmation of a Supreme Court justice to a lifetime appointment while the investigation into Donald Trump is ongoing. Because a vote for Kavanaugh is a vote to let Trump fire special counsel Robert Mueller—and get away with it. "I believe," wrote Kavanaugh, "that the President should be excused from some of the burdens of ordinary citizenship while serving in office ... We should not burden a sitting President with civil suits, criminal investigations, or criminal prosecutions." He went on to add that presidents should have "absolute discretion" to fire special counsels if that president believes they are "out to get him." Will you chip in and help us work to ensure that Brett Kavanaugh is not confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court?
