How Ruth Bader Ginsburg Became RBG 9

In her 25 years on the bench, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has reliably sided with the Supreme Court’s liberal wing. The 85-year-old’s life is the subject of the new documentary “RBG,” and its directors Betsy West and Julie Cohen join us to talk about Ginsburg’s journey from diminutive New Yorker to cultural icon. “RBG” opens in theaters on May 11.
