• Women AdvaNCe, a statewide nonpartisan nonprofit, hosts a pre-screening of RBG on Thursday, May 17, at 7 p.m. at the Fine Arts Theatre, 36 Biltmore Ave. The new documentary on Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be followed by a panel discussion on the Equal Rights Amendment, co-hosted by the ERA Alliance North Carolina, with an emphasis on local efforts to persuade North Carolina lawmakers to ratify the constitutional amendment. The event is also the launch of the 2018 N.C. Women’s Summit, which will take place Nov. 10 at The Collider.
No other Supreme Court justice, living or dead, has had a hold on the American popular imagination like Ruth Bader Ginsburg. But if you think never is heard a discouraging word where she is concerned, the stirring documentary “RBG” sets you straight from the start.
In fact, co-directors Betsy West and Julie Cohen have chosen to begin their completely engrossing film with audio of angry anti-Ginsburg language on the order of “evil doer,” “monster,” “witch,” “zombie,” even “vile human being.”

“Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers.
Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society.
Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears.
Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi
