RBG

Michele sits down with three guests and discusses cases that are currently on the docket and their potential repercussions for progressive values, as well as "RBG," a new film about the influential justice's life.

The Supreme Court is in crunch time. With eight weeks left, the justices still have 39 cases unresolved. Elizabeth Wydra, president of the Constitution Accountability Center, breaks down which cases are still on the docket and which decisions could threaten important progressive values, including immigration, LGBTQ rights, voting, abortion, and unions. Then, Michele speaks with Julie Cohen and Betsy West, co-producers and directors for the new film “RBG,” which chronicles the life and legal achievements of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in honor of her 25 years on the bench. Cohen and West share what it was like having a front-row seat to RBG’s life over the past year, why young women all over have turned the 84-year-old gender equality advocate into a superstar, and why they chose to have an all-woman leadership team on the film.
