Felicity Jones becomes a feminist heroine in the trailer for "A gender issue"

Felicity Jones is again a hero, although this time she plays a person of flesh and blood and not a fictional character as in Star wars. Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the woman who gives life on the big screen, the judge of the Supreme Court of the United States who made history for her fight for equal rights. The film, which will be released in 2019, already has a trailer in Spanish and teaches us how the heroines of the world are real women like the lawyer they play.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg He had to fight more than his teammates to get a place at Harvard University. She was a woman in a world of men, pointed out and prejudged by her gender. But she is also a tireless fighter, who eventually became a judge of the United States Supreme Court. He founded the American Civil Liberties Union and It has become an icon of modern feminism, key in the fight for the civil rights of women and homosexuals in the US legal system.

That's why the director of The Leftovers, Mimi Leder, wanted to take her story to the big screen with Felicity Jones in the skin of the lawyer. Armie hamer (Call Me By Your Name) is responsible for interpreting Martin, her husband. The movie, set in the seventies, narrates the case Moritz v. Commissioner of Internal Revenue of 1972 that initiated the process to end a century of gender discrimination.

The soundtrack is provided by Kesha, who admitted in the Hollywood Reporter that she became overwhelmed by this "great task after seeing what she has done for women"

Justin Theroux (The Leftovers), Kathy Bates (American Horror Story) or Sam Waterston (The Sloane case) are some of the actors that close the distribution of a film that will be released the story of a real heroine. One that still today is fighting for women's rights.
