JNS.org – Israeli-American actress Natalie Portman will star as Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in a new biographical film.

The film, to be titled On The Basis Of Sex, will chart Ginsburg’s life, in particular her efforts and the obstacles she felt in her fight for equal rights for women.

At the time of her appointment to the Supreme Court in 1993, Ginsburg was the court’s second-ever female justice and its first-ever Jewish female justice.
