In this trailer for On the Basis of Sex, Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Felicity Jones) wants to change the laws so that women have more rights. Ruth wants to become a lawyer so she can help clients in pursuit of justice. She runs into roadblocks everywhere she turns. With her husband Marty's (Armie Hammer) support, she takes on a case that could topple the whole system of discrimination. Men tell her she will lose, and that when she does, she'll set the women's movement back 10 years. She doesn't listen to the naysayers, pressing on to fight her case in court. The judge tells her that the word "woman" doesn't appear even once in the U.S. Constitution. She comes back with, "Nor does the word freedom, your Honor."
