Ruth Bader Ginsburg Talks #MeToo Movement, Shares Her Stories: 'It's About Time'

Robert Redford arrives at Sundance's Cinema Cafe to attend the interview of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg by NPR's Nina Totenberg in connection with the documentary

"You have a husband with a good paying job in NY", she recalled the administrator saying.

When Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg began her legal crusade, women were treated differently than men by law.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg addressed reports this weekend that she's hired law clerks for future terms on the Supreme Court, saying Sunday that as long as she's in good health, she'll continue serving.

Ginsburg, clutching her microphone with both hands, said she grasped the seriousness of the abusive power collegiate men could have over women during her undergraduate studies at Cornell University in the 1950s. "The stick was, if you don't give her a chance, I will never recommend another Columbia student to you", Ginsburg said.

"The next day, the test was the practice exam".


"When Totenberg pressed her on how she handled the situation, Ginsburg said she went to his office and asked him: "'How dare you? "How dare you?' And that was the end of it".

"It's about time", Ginsburg said.

Ginsburg spoke with affection and tenderness about her husband, an attorney and excellent cook who passed away in 2010 from cancer.

Ginsburg is the oldest Justice, and conservatives - especially the Christian right activists who with Justice Gorsuch's ascension understand that they are just one more SCOTUS seat away from the votes to radically change USA constitutional law - have been eyeing her spot ever since their ally Donald Trump won the presidency. The answer, she learned, was that the other professor required a larger salary because "he has a wife and children to support". For so long women were silent, thinking there was nothing they could do about it.

During the Q&A, Ginsburg also spoke about the sexism she encountered as a young professor at Rutger's Law School. "No guy up until then was the least interested in how I thought". "I liked the actress who portrayed me". But, as Totenberg noted, she has already filled slots for her law clerks through the 2020 term - which is just as the justice wants it. Of course, the question everyone has on their minds was also one of the first to be asked: how long she plans to stay on the Supreme Court.
