Watch Felicity Jones as a Young Ruth Bader Ginsburg in ‘On the Basis of Sex’ | Anatomy of a Scene Hi I’m Mimi leder, I’m the director of on the basis of sex. This is rbg’s first day at Harvard Law. School is the first day of shooting of Bill tracks and I put her right in the center of the frame sitting in a sea of men. She was one of nine women entering Harvard this year and all the men and raising their hands, and Professor Brown purposely doesn’t call on her, because this was awkward for the professor’s as well as it was for all the men there, and this is called a hairy Hand case and it’s an homage to paperchase, which features the same case, and it’s about a doctor, probably burn victims, 100 % good hand, then grafted skin. I really wanted to focus on that. Rbg was the smartest person in the room. It was a culture of discrimination. Was a patriarchal society and Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a woman who change that culture and in this scene she has to work her way through these lights. It’S the same thing.

Ginsburg or a filibuster This scene from the biopic “On the Basis of Sex” shows Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Felicity Jones) in an Introduction to Contracts class during her first year at Harvard Law School.
