You may be wondering who RBG is and why we're talking about her.

RBG stands for Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who is an American judge that sits on the US Supreme Court. This is the most important court in the country and has a say in all the biggest laws that are made.

Ruth has spent more than 50 years fighting for the rights of people who may not always get a chance to have their voice heard.

A documentary about her life was released in January last year and was added to Netflix later.

She won the best real life hero award beating out stars like tennis great Serena Williams and WWE wrestler Roman Reigns.
