On the Basis of Sex Screening


Women Lawyers Association of the ACT and Maddocks were delighted to host a special event screening of On the Basis of Sex last Thursday 7 February 2019 at Palace Electric Cinema.


Ruth Bader Ginsburg has had an exceptional and inspiring career from her role as an advocate for gender equality and women’s rights to the present as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. Last year’s WLA special event screening of the RBG documentary was a big hit with our members and guests and it was wonderful to be able to follow this up with a screening of the new release movie On the Basis of Sex based on the true story of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

On the Basis of Sex tells the inspiring and spirited true story of the origins of young lawyer Ruth Bader Ginsburg as she teams up with with her husband Marty to bring a ground-breaking case before the U.S Court of Appeals and overturn a century of gender discrimination. Our WLA members and guests enjoyed the movie over a glass of wine, popcorn and an icecream.

A big thank you to all our attendees and to Maddocks for their generous sponsorship of this event.
