On January 4, 2019, Orange County Women Lawyers Association kicked off the year with a viewing of On the Basis of Sex. The film features Felicity Jones as Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg during a span in her lifetime from law school through her first oral arguments.
Several members met for a happy hour prior to the movie and over 40 attorney and judicial members showed up with significant others, daughters, and friends to watch the limited release film. It was simply a delight to watch this film with a group that understands the pressures of the legal profession – both with our colleagues as well as the impact it has on our personal lives. The moments of laughter were not only humorous, but also a shared understanding of what we, or our fellow women attorneys that have paved the way before us have endured. If viewers weren’t a fan of the NotoriousRBG before the film, they were when they left the film.
A special thank you to the event co-chairs and OCWLA board members Jessica Munk of the Law Office of David W. Wiechert and Tracy Hughes of the Orange County District Attorney’s office for executing the planning of this successful event over the holiday season.
