If you don’t know much about the second female justice to be confirmed to the Court, you will have an opportunity to get a glimpse on May 4. This is the date the documentary film about Ginsburg will air. In it, she will reflect on her life, barrier-breaking career, and marriage.

Living like a rock star

Ginsburg has fans all over the country, as countless people gather to welcome her at public appearances. Many worry about her health and fear that she can’t do her job anymore due to age-related issues. But now, they can also sigh with relief since the justice "feels fine."


And she’s sending a message to all Republicans and President Trump, in particular: she will remain on the court as long as possible. So, there’s no need to nominate and confirm her successor now.


Ginsburg also enjoys spotlight and public attention. Since the beginning of 2018, she has outpaced her colleagues in the number of public appearances, visiting synagogues, schools, and even film festivals! As RBG said:

I am soon to be 85. And everyone wants to take their picture with me!


At the advanced age, a two-time cancer survivor knows how to keep healthy and out of retirement. The secret is regular workouts. Twice a week, Ginsburg goes to the gym where she does chest presses, pull-downs, leg curls, and much more.

And on her birthday, we wish Ruth Bader Ginsburg many more years to come!
