The news is not quite official, but it seems that the actress Natalie Portman is tipped to play the role of judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the film «On The Basis Of Sex» which will recount her life.

Justice Ginsburg was a very important ally for LGBT rights and for women's rights.

She has been the second woman and the first Jewish judge to be appointed in the Supreme Court and has been also the first judge of that court to officiate a same-sex marriage.

She was also part of the organization ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) we know well to defend our community against discrimination or during challenges facing anti-gay laws. She was a volunteer lawyer, but also a member of its director's office. Earlier this year, Time Magazine listed her as Icon in their Time 100.

The production of the film, whose script was written by Daniel Stiepleman, should begin at the end of this year.
