Just in time for International Women's Day, the trailer for an upcoming documentary about Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was released on Wednesday. The film, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and will hit select theaters on May 4, is appropriately and simply titled RBG.


The trailer begins with the 84-year-old quoting abolitionist and suffragette Sarah Grimké, saying, "I ask no favor for my sex. All I ask of our brethren is that they take their feet off our necks."

Some people on Twitter were excited to learn that the documentary even existed, and shared their enthusiasm for the trailer (and the woman herself) throughout the day, with plenty of GIFs to illustrate.

The documentary, directed by Betsy West and Julie Cohen, will examine Ginsburg's life and career, from her entry into the legal profession to her marriage to late husband Martin Ginsburg. (As she says in the trailer, "He was the first boy I ever knew who cared that I had a brain.") It also features interviews about the icon with figures such as Gloria Steinem, as well as commentary on Ginsburg's influence in pop culture.

The film also appears to detail Ginsburg's workout routine, which inspired a book by her trainer titled The RBG Workout. As one YouTube commenter wrote of the documentary's trailer, "I thoroughly respect and admire Justice Ginsberg's fierce intellect and fearless advocacy for women's right and for human rights. That she's also warm and witty is a bonus. Long live the Notorious RBG."
