MBWR cosponsors free screening of movie “On the Basis of Sex”

Join the Mississippi Black Women’s Roundtable (MS-BWR) and Mississippi Women’s Economic Security Initiative (MWESI) on Tuesday, January 22 for a free reception and film screening of “On the Basis of Sex,” a narrative film highlighting the early career of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
“On the Basis of Sex,” tells the story of Ruth Bader Ginsburg as she teams with her husband, Marty, to bring a groundbreaking case before the U.S. Court of Appeals and challenge more than a century of gender discrimination.
This film screening comes at a pivotal time in Mississippi history when the state is on the verge of achieving justice in the fight for gender equality.
We are thrilled to be partnering on this event with the ACLU of Mississippi, Planned Parenthood Southeast, G.I.R.L. JSU, Women for Progress, and Participant Media.
